Thomas, Amanda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Increasing availability of digital devices in elementary school classrooms presents exciting new opportunities for teachers to support the teaching and learning of mathematics. Although many of the math applications available for these devices focus on drill and practice of mathematical procedures, screencasting apps can help support effective…

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…

Keazer, Lindsay; Gerberry, Carla – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Imagine a mathematics classroom in which students engage in sharing ideas and reasoning through solutions to interesting mathematical problems. They are excited about mathematics and working on challenging problems that encourage collaboration and critical thinking. These are things that teachers want, but sometimes they do not know how to achieve…

Walter, Hope A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
Discourse in mathematics classrooms has been at the forefront of mathematics reform for years. Of the eight NCTM Mathematics Teaching Practices, four relate specifically to the use of discussion, questioning, and the analysis of student thinking that is based on discourse. As an answer to the demand for discourse within many mathematics classroom,…

Shumway, Jessica F.; Pace, Lauren – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Young children naturally engage in mathematics as they play and explore. Although many early childhood educators are aware that children are frequently interacting with mathematical ideas, a certain level of knowledge and awareness is required to identify and highlight the mathematics that children are engaging in and to create opportunities for…

Drake, Corey; Land, Tonia J.; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Aguirre, Julia M.; Foote, Mary Q.; McDuffie, Amy Roth; Turner, Erin E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
Many teachers experience the tension between using published curriculum materials and teaching in ways that are responsive to children. Teachers are often expected to use a particular mathematics curriculum series, but they still want to be able to build on and connect to children's multiple mathematical knowledge bases (MMKB).…

Thomas, Jonathan N.; Eisenhardt, Sara; Fisher, Molly H.; Schack, Edna O.; Tassell, Janet; Yoder, Margaret – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014
Thoughtful implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) presents an opportunity for increased emphasis on the development of mathematical understanding among students. Granted, ascertaining the mathematical understanding of an individual student is highly complex work and often exceedingly difficult.…

Polly, Drew – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2011
Students' use of technology allows them to generate and manipulate multiple representations of a concept, compute numbers with relative ease, and focus more on mathematical concepts and higher-order thinking skills. In elementary school mathematics classrooms, students develop higher-order thinking skills by completing complex tasks that require…

Parks, Amy Noelle; Blom, Diana Chang – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2013
The purpose of this article is to provide strategies for recognizing meaningful mathematics in common play contexts in early childhood classrooms and to offer suggestions for how teachers might intervene in these moments to help children attend to the mathematical ideas embedded in their play. In particular, the author's focus on the concepts of…

Parks, Amy Noelle; Wakabayashi, Tomoko; Hardin, Beth – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
In many prekindergarten classes, children begin the day by singing a song as part of their opening routine. In reflecting on opening routines in public prekindergarten classrooms across Michigan, the authors have been struck by how often small changes in teachers' routines or materials could enrich the mathematical engagement of children. The goal…

Morin, Joe; Samelson, Vicki M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
Representations that create informative visual displays are powerful tools for communicating mathematical concepts. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics encourages the use of manipulatives (NCTM 2000). Manipulative materials are often used to present initial representations of basic numerical principles to young children, and it is…

Thom, Jennifer S. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2011
This article presents a descriptive account of an after-school study. The participants--Allan (male, ten years), Veronique (female, nine years), and William (male, ten years)--all spoke English as their first language and were considered by their classroom teachers to be meeting the provincially set expectations for the fifth-grade curriculum…

Kurz, Terri L.; Serrano, Alejandra – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
To support students' development of concepts in mathematics, the use of technology is often encouraged (Common Core State Standards Initiative [CCSSI] 2010). Technology can contextualize learning and provide a meaningful setting for mathematical ideas. Most teachers are supportive regarding the use of technology to encourage learning and…

Marshall, Anne Marie; Superfine, Alison Castro; Canty, Reality S. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Ms. Beyer's first graders have been working for several weeks on solving problems that encourage the use of such multiple representations as ten frames and number lines. The class is using Math Trailblazers, a National Science Foundation-supported elementary school math curriculum developed to reflect recent reform efforts in mathematics…
