Jung, Hyunyi – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

An important question for mathematics teachers is this: "How can we help students learn mathematics to solve everyday problems, rather than teaching them only to memorize rules and practice mathematical procedures?" Teaching students using modeling activities can help them learn mathematics in real-world problem-solving situations that…

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…

White, D.; Sullivan, E. – PRIMUS, 2018

Teaching teachers to participate in mathematical inquiry has the potential to both transform belief systems about mathematics and to transform teachers from consumers of mathematics to producers of mathematics. The focus of this paper is to describe the use of a problem, based on a non-traditional binary operation, to encourage and teach…

Allsopp, David; Lovin, LouAnn H.; van Ingen, Sarah – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017

Special educators can play an essential role in the development of students' understanding of and capacity to do mathematics. Whether a special education teacher's goal is to help kindergartners develop counting skills or to support 10th graders in constructing geometric proofs and whether instruction will occur in co teaching, consulting, or…

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…

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…

Silver, Edward A., Ed.; Kenney, Patricia Ann, Ed. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2015

This book's 28 chapters are adapted and updated from articles published in NCTM's "Journal for Research in Mathematics Education" between 2000 and 2010. The authors have rewritten and revised their work to make it clear, understandable, and--most of all--useful for mathematics teachers today. To help teachers even more, these articles…

Evans, Brian R. – Journal of the National Association for Alternative Certification, 2014

Mathematics and science education has increasingly become more important for students in our globally competitive society. New alternative certification teachers, particularly in mathematics and science, need to support student learning in these areas in order for the United States to stay globally competitive. This article presents some ideas…

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…

Flores, Ángel Homero; Gómez, Adriana; Chávez, Xochitl – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2015

Using Mathematical Modelling has become a useful tool in teaching-learning mathematics at all levels. This is so because mathematical objects are seen from their very applications, giving them meaning from the beginning. In this paper we present some details on the development of a teacher's training course called Modelling in the Teaching of…

Ponce, Gregorio A.; Tuba, Imre – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

New strategies can ignite teachers' imagination to create new lessons or adapt lessons created by others. In this article, the authors present the experience of an algebra teacher and his students solving linear and literal equations and explain how the use of ideas found in past NCTM journals helped bring this lesson to life. The…

Dibbs, Rebecca; Beach, Janessa; Rios, Daniel – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

Rich mathematical modeling activities are crucial to giving students agency and making mathematics meaningful. Proportional reasoning and transitional algebraic reasoning are the primary topics in the prealgebra curriculum, so a need exists for meaningful modeling activities using proportional reasoning in addition to geometric modeling. In…

Pavlekovic, Margita, Ed.; Kolar-Begovic, Zdenka, Ed.; Kolar-Super, Ruzica, Ed. – Online Submission, 2013

The universities and faculties which educate teachers of mathematics for teaching pupils/students of any age group from pre-school age to higher education carefully monitor and compare valuable results of this research, detect the areas in which the mathematical achievements of pupils should be improved at the national level and propose the ways…

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).…

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…
