Sammons, Laney – ASCD, 2018
Students learning math are expected to do more than just solve problems; they must also be able to demonstrate their thinking and share their ideas, both orally and in writing. As many classroom teachers have discovered, these can be challenging tasks for students. The good news is, mathematical communication can be taught and mastered. In…

Bouck, Emily C.; Working, Christopher; Bone, Erin – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2018
Understanding mathematical concepts is important for all students, although often challenging for many students with disabilities. Historically, educators have used concrete manipulatives to support and build conceptual understanding. Mobile devices provide a valuable option to support students with disabilities in mathematics through app-based…

Son, Ji-Won; Crespo, Sandra – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2009
Recognizing meaning in students' mathematical ideas is challenging, especially when such ideas are different from standard mathematics. This study examined, through a teaching-scenario task, the reasoning and responses of prospective elementary and secondary teachers to a student's non-traditional strategy for dividing fractions. Six categories of…

Nickerson, Susan D.; Whitacre, Ian – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2010
Gravemeijer's (1999, 2004) construct of a "local instruction theory" suggests a means of offering teachers a framework of reference for designing and engaging students in a set of sequenced, exemplary instructional activities that support students' mathematical development for a focused concept. In this paper we offer a local instruction theory to…
