Hernández, Maria L.; Levy, Rachel; Felton-Koestler, Mathew D.; Zbiek, Rose Mary – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

In 2015, mathematics leaders and instructors from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP), with input from NCTM, came together to write the "Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Mathematical Modeling Education" (GAIMME) report as a resource for…

Jung, Hyunyi – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

An important question for mathematics teachers is this: "How can we help students learn mathematics to solve everyday problems, rather than teaching them only to memorize rules and practice mathematical procedures?" Teaching students using modeling activities can help them learn mathematics in real-world problem-solving situations that…

Fitz, Margaret – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016

This article focuses on the mathematical value of teaching angles through the use of sundials in the classroom. The history of sundials and the mathematics embedded within them is discussed in detail. In addition, practical applications of angles are included, along with interactive practice telling time with the angles created on sundials. Time…

Parker, Frieda; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Novak, Jodie D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017

Research advances in teaching, learning, curriculum, and assessment have not changed the continued underperformance of marginalized students in mathematics education. Culturally responsive teaching is a means of addressing the needs of these students. It is sometimes challenging, however, to convince secondary mathematics teachers about the…

Silver, Edward A., Ed.; Kenney, Patricia Ann, Ed. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2015

This book's 28 chapters are adapted and updated from articles published in NCTM's "Journal for Research in Mathematics Education" between 2000 and 2010. The authors have rewritten and revised their work to make it clear, understandable, and--most of all--useful for mathematics teachers today. To help teachers even more, these articles…

Flores, Ángel Homero; Gómez, Adriana; Chávez, Xochitl – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2015

Using Mathematical Modelling has become a useful tool in teaching-learning mathematics at all levels. This is so because mathematical objects are seen from their very applications, giving them meaning from the beginning. In this paper we present some details on the development of a teacher's training course called Modelling in the Teaching of…

Pavlekovic, Margita, Ed.; Kolar-Begovic, Zdenka, Ed.; Kolar-Super, Ruzica, Ed. – Online Submission, 2013

The universities and faculties which educate teachers of mathematics for teaching pupils/students of any age group from pre-school age to higher education carefully monitor and compare valuable results of this research, detect the areas in which the mathematical achievements of pupils should be improved at the national level and propose the ways…

Shin, Dongjo; Smith, Ryan C.; Kim, Somin – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018

Use a framework to evaluate a tool: Is it mathematically sound? Does it offer opportunities for student engagement with little distraction? Will it afford students the chance to develop their own ideas? This article provides a framework that teachers can use to evaluate technological tools. The authors evaluate two examples that are designed to…

Galluzzo, Benjamin J.; McGivney-Burelle, Jean; Wagstrom, Rikki B. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

Human beings are having a profound impact on the environment. The opportunity to investigate this timely issue during one or two class periods gives algebra and precalculus students insight into a sustainability topic of great international concern--carbon footprints. Students use mathematical thinking in matters that are pertinent to their…

Mulcahy, Candace A.; Krezmien, Michael; Maccini, Paula – Preventing School Failure, 2014

While the Common Core State Standards and state learning standards guide teachers in what mathematical content knowledge should be addressed as well as the processes and proficiencies necessary for developing mathematical competence, several student- and teacher-related factors may hinder student access to the general education curriculum for…

Bostic, Jonathan D. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

"Who has been to Dairy Queen® and purchased a Blizzard?®" Ms. Bosetti asked her students. During the summer, Bosetti had seen many of her former and future students at the local Dairy Queen enjoying Blizzard desserts and wondered, "Which Blizzard size is the best value?" She used this context for a ratios and proportions task…

Marzocchi, Alison S. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

This article suggests that logic puzzles, such as the well-known Tower of Hanoi puzzle, can be used to introduce computer science concepts to mathematics students of all ages. Mathematics teachers introduce their students to computer science concepts that are enacted spontaneously and subconsciously throughout the solution to the Tower of Hanoi…

King, Alessandra – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2014

Middle school students' mathematical understanding benefits from connecting mathematics to other content areas in the curriculum. This month's activity explores the issue of the scarcity of freshwater, a natural resource (activity sheets are included). This activity concentrates on the critical areas mentioned in the Common Core State…

Bush, Sarah B.; Gibbons, Katie; Karp, Karen S.; Dillon, Fred – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

The phenomenon of outbreaks of dangerous diseases is both intriguing to students and of mathematical significance, which is exactly why the authors engaged eighth graders in an introductory activity on the growth that occurs as an epidemic spreads. Various contexts can set the stage for such an exploration. Reading adolescent literature like…

Hendrickson, Katie A. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

Mathematical modeling, a focus of the Common Core State Standards for School Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) and one of the Standards for Mathematical Practice, is generally considered to be the process of exploring a real-world situation and making sense of it using mathematics (Lesh and Zawojewski 2007). Teachers need to create opportunities for…
