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…

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…

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…

National Center on Intensive Intervention, 2016

The purpose of this guide is to provide brief explanations of practices that can be implemented when working with students in need of intensive intervention in mathematics. Special education instructors, math interventionists, and others working with students who struggle with mathematics may find this guide helpful. Specific topics covered…

Lim, Kien H.; Buendia, Gabriela; Kim, Ok-Kyeong; Cordero, Francisco; Kasmer, Lisa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010

The prevalence of prediction in grade-level expectations in mathematics curriculum standards signifies the importance of the role prediction plays in the teaching and learning of mathematics. In this article, we discuss benefits of using prediction in mathematics classrooms: (1) students' prediction can reveal their conceptions, (2) prediction…

Cardella, Monica E. – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008

While many engineering educators have proposed changes to the way that mathematics is taught to engineers, the focus has often been on mathematical content knowledge. Work from the mathematics education community suggests that it may be beneficial to consider a broader notion of mathematics: mathematical thinking. Schoenfeld identifies five…

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…

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…

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…
