Gresham, Gina; Shannon, Tracy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Mathematics discourse is a teaching approach that encourages student discussion and reveals an understanding of concepts as students engage in mathematical reasoning and debate (Cobb 2006). Grabowski and Ke (2007) posit that students have significantly higher achievement and positive attitudes toward mathematics after participating in gaming…

Hilton, Annette; Hilton, Geoff – Teaching Science, 2016
In many scientific contexts, students need to be able to use mathematical knowledge in order to engage in scientific reasoning and problem-solving, and their understanding of scientific concepts relies heavily on their ability to understand and use mathematics in often new or unfamiliar contexts. Not only do science students need high levels of…

Caldwell, Janet H.; Kobett, Beth; Karp, Karen – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2014
Do your students have the incorrect idea that addition "makes numbers bigger" and subtraction "makes numbers smaller"? Do they believe that subtraction is always "taking away"? What tasks can you offer--what questions can you ask--to determine what your students know or don't know--and move them forward in their…

Stephens, Ana; Blanton, Maria; Knuth, Eric; Isler, Isil; Gardiner, Angela Murphy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
Mathematics educators have argued for some time that elementary school students are capable of engaging in algebraic thinking and should be provided with rich opportunities to do so. Recent initiatives like the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) have taken up this call by reiterating the place of early algebra in…

Duatepe Paksu, Asuman – Hacettepe University Journal of Education, 2008
The aims of the study reported in this paper were to identify teachers' beliefs about mathematics and to analyze possible significant differences in mathematics beliefs in terms of teachers' branches and gender. Teachers' mathematics beliefs were investigated by use of a 20-item self-report questionnaire; related to beliefs about process of…

Brendefur, Jonathan L.; Strother, Sam; Rich, Kelli; Appleton, Sarah – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016
Teachers use the word assessment to describe any method of gathering information about student learning. Whether it be formative assessment (intended to guide instructional decisions) or summative assessment (a reflection on the entirety of student learning from prior instruction), teachers are constantly working to identify what their students…

Roberts, Tim – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2007
It is not often that one can introduce primary school students to a problem at the forefront of mathematics research, and have any expectation of understanding; but with magic squares, one can do exactly that. Magic squares are an ideal tool for the effective illustration of many mathematical concepts. This paper assumes little prior knowledge on…

Hurst, Chris – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2007
The plethora of data that confronts teachers on a daily basis requires that they know more than simply being able to calculate. It demands that they understand the context in which the mathematical ideas are embedded and what those ideas are telling them in relation to that context. Also, it necessitates that they are prepared to question how…

Erbilgin, Evrim – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
This article describes a series of two linear measurement activities designed to integrate the related content and processes of Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) into classroom practice using nonstandard units. In the article, nonstandard units refer to same-size, repeatable units (e.g., paper clips, feet) for a specified…

Fitzallen, Noleine – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2007
The ever increasing availability of mathematics education software and internet-based multimedia learning activities presents teachers with the difficult task of deciding which programs are best suited for their students' learning needs. The challenge is for teachers to select pedagogical products that not only promote significant mathematical…

Bass, Hyman, Ed.; Usiskin, Zalman, Ed.; Burrill, Gail, Ed. – National Academies Press, 2002
The Mathematical Sciences Education Board (MSEB) and the U.S. National Commission on Mathematics Instruction (USNCMI) took advantage of a unique opportunity to bring educators together. In August 2000, following the Ninth International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME-9) in Makuhari, Japan, MSEB and USNCMI capitalized on the presence of…

Mildenhall, Paula; Swan, Paul; Northcote, Maria; Marshall, Linda – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2008
As part of the project titled "Hands-On Heads-On: The Effective Use of Manipulatives Both Virtual and Physical" being undertaken at Edith Cowan University, there was an investigation into the use of virtual manipulatives and the interactive whiteboard (IWB). Virtual manipulatives may be defined as a virtual representation of a physical…
