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…

Gates, Miriam; Cordner, Tracy; Kerins, Bowen; Cuoco, Al; Badertscher, Eden; Burrill, Gail – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice (CCSSI 2010) elevate the ways of thinking used to create mathematical results to the same level of importance as the results themselves. These mathematical habits of mind (MHoM), or "specialized ways of approaching mathematical problems and thinking about mathematical concepts that…

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…

Strayer, Jeremy F.; Hart, James B.; Bleiler, Sarah K. – PRIMUS, 2015

In this article, we share a model of flipped instruction that allowed us to gain a window into our students' mathematical thinking. We depict how that increased awareness of student thinking shaped our mathematics instruction in productive ways. Drawing on our experiences with students in our own classrooms, we show how flipped instruction can be…

Schifter, Deborah; Bastable, Virginia; Russell, Susan Jo – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2016

The "Building a System of Tens Casebook" was developed as the key resource for participants' Developing Mathematical Ideas seminar experience. The thirty cases, written by teachers describing real situations and actual student thinking in their classrooms, provide the basis of each session's investigation of specific mathematical…

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).…

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…

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.…

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…

Widjaja, Wanty; Stacey, Kaye; Steinle, Vicki – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008

Extensive studies have documented various difficulties with, and misconceptions about, decimal numeration across different levels of education. This paper reports on pre-service teachers' misconceptions about the density of decimals. Written test data from 140 Indonesian pre-service teachers, observation of group and classroom discussions provided…
