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…

Huber, Daniel; Jones, Leslie; Helminski, Christine – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2015
The use of collaborative problem solving within mathematics education is imperative in this day and age of integrative science. The formation of interdisciplinary teams of mathematicians and scientists to investigate crucial problems is on the rise, as greater insight can be gained from an interdisciplinary perspective. Mathematical modelling, in…

Fletcher, Nicole – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Mathematics curriculum designers and policy decision makers are beginning to recognize the importance of problem solving, even at the earliest stages of mathematics learning. The Common Core includes sense making and perseverance in solving problems in its standards for mathematical practice for students at all grade levels. Incorporating problem…

Baxter, Juliet A.; Williams, Steven – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2010
The current reform movement in mathematics education urges teachers to support students as they make sense of mathematics, while also ensuring that they gain specific mathematical skills and knowledge. The tension between these two expectations gives rise to what we call the dilemma of telling: how to ensure that students come to certain…

Tucker, Steven; Shumway, Jessica F.; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S.; Jordan, Kerry E. – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2016
Teachers increasingly use virtual manipulatives and other apps on touch-screen devices (e.g., "iPads") in an effort to help students understand mathematics concepts. However, students experience these apps and their affordances in different ways. The purpose of this article is to inform teachers' decisions about app implementation in the…

Nagy, Robin – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2013
It is essential to retain a focus on building students' mathematical reasoning and comprehension rather than merely developing superficial understanding through procedural learning. All too often this approach "takes a back seat" because of examination and assessment pressure, where the importance of "How?" supersedes that of…

Bowers, Janet S.; Stephens, Becky – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2011
The technological revolution that has finally permeated K-12 education has direct implications for modern teacher educators whose "Hippocratic oath" is to best prepare future teachers for twenty-first-century classrooms. The goal of this article is to suggest that the heart of sound technological implementation is to encourage students to use…

Sriraman, Bharath, Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2012
The interaction of the history of mathematics and mathematics education has long been construed as an esoteric area of inquiry. Much of the research done in this realm has been under the auspices of the history and pedagogy of mathematics group. However there is little systematization or consolidation of the existing literature aimed at…

Modica, Erasmo – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2011
This article describes an activity that can be carried out in one of the final classes of Italian secondary schools. The aim of the activity is to stimulate pupil curiosity, demonstrating that Mathematics is not a barren subject and allowing the students, according to an interdisciplinary point of view, to investigate some literary works and the…

Wernet, Jamie L. W. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
When the author returned to teaching after several years in graduate school, she came armed with knowledge and visions of a student-centered classroom. Her experiences in a doctoral program taught her much about effective mathematics instruction and rekindled her desire to teach. However, a student-centered classroom reflected a major shift in…

Roscoe, Matt B. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
Instead of reserving the study of probability and statistics for special fourth-year high school courses, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) takes a "statistics for all" approach. The standards recommend that students in grades 6-8 learn to summarize and describe data distributions, understand probability, draw…

Scimone, Aldo – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2011
The international debate about experimental approaches to the teaching and learning mathematics is very current. While number theory lends itself naturally to such approaches, elementary geometry can also provide interesting starting points for creative work in class. This article shows how simple considerations about right triangles and the…

Prasad, Priya V. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
How can we, as teachers, encourage students to move from drawing geometric objects to constructing them and thereby build their mathematical reasoning skills? One way to encourage students to construct instead of draw shapes and to help students develop more robust understandings of geometric relationships and constructions is to use interactive…
