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…

Popelka, Susan R.; Langlois, Joshua – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

"Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions" is an 1884 novella written by English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott. He describes what it would be like to live in a two-dimensional (2D) world--Flatland. It is fascinating reading that underscores the challenge of teaching three-dimensional (3D) mathematics using 2D tools. Real-world applications of…

Huang, Rongjin; Prince, Kyle M.; Schmidt, Teresa – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

The importance of developing reasoning and justification has been highlighted in "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (NCTM 2000). The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) further reiterates the importance of reasoning and proof in several standards for mathematical practice. Students of all grades are…

Oldenburg, Reinhard – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2015

Quantifier Elimination is a procedure that allows simplification of logical formulas that contain quantifiers. Many mathematical concepts are defined in terms of quantifiers and especially in calculus their use has been identified as an obstacle in the learning process. The automatic deduction provided by quantifier elimination thus allows…

Small, Marian; Lin, Amy – Teachers College Press, 2010

Teachers know that Differentiated Instruction (DI) helps all students to learn. Yet DI challenges teachers, and nowhere more than in mathematics. In this new book, written specifically for secondary mathematics teachers, the authors cut through the difficulties with two powerful and universal strategies that teachers can use across all math…

Edwards, Thomas G.; Chelst, Kenneth R. – Mathematics Teacher, 2007

When studying mathematics, students often ask the age-old question, "When will I ever use this in my future?" The activities described in this article demonstrate for students a process that brings the power of mathematical reasoning to bear on a difficult decision involving multiple criteria that is sure to resonate with the interests of many of…

Parramore, Keith – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2009

In Volume 26, Number 2, we reported on a group case study run for level 3 mathematics students at the University of Brighton. At the core of the study was a quadratic assignment problem, and we reported on attempts by students to use Excel to solve the problem, and on the attendant difficulties. We provided an elegant solution. In this article, we…

This module examines Rigor, the third of the three shifts required for implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). This module is based on the premise that the information from Modules 1 and 2 is well understood. Course Objectives: By the end of the module, the learner will be able to: (1) identify the components of…

Groetsch, C. W. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2004

The origin of the function concept is usually traced to Galileo's work on motion. We argue that specific proto-function concepts appeared in the work of Tartaglia a century before the publication of Galileo's Two New Sciences. The study of Tartaglia's ideas can be used in the classroom as a historical introduction to various function concepts,…

Campbell, Paul J.; Grinstein, Louise S. – 1988

The changing role of mathematics in society may require a different mathematics curriculum in the schools. Curriculum builders work constructing pieces of the new mathematics curriculum. To last, this new curriculum must be based on a foundation of experience and research. This book provides access to that foundation for secondary schools and…

Nicely, Robert F., Jr., Ed.; Sigmund, Thomas F., Ed. – 1988

One of the strengths of the Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of Mathematics (PCTM) is that it gives mathematicians and mathematics educators the opportunity to exchange and contribute to each other's professional growth. The topic for each yearbook is chosen to coincide with the annual PCTM meeting. This 1988 yearbook contains 27 articles which…
