Bintas, Jale – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2008
This study is based on the principle that the mathematical anxiety in preservice kindergarten teachers-to-be should be removed and they should be encouraged towards mathematics. It is expected from teachers-to-be who are able to construct this confidence to prepare exercises improving mathematical ideas for their students. This study was carried…

Parks, Amy Noelle; Wakabayashi, Tomoko; Hardin, Beth – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
In many prekindergarten classes, children begin the day by singing a song as part of their opening routine. In reflecting on opening routines in public prekindergarten classrooms across Michigan, the authors have been struck by how often small changes in teachers' routines or materials could enrich the mathematical engagement of children. The goal…

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…

Pinter, Klara – PRIMUS, 2011
The emphasis on problem solving and problem solving courses has become a standard staple of most teacher preparation programs in mathematics. While opinions differ on whether problem solving should be integrated throughout the preparatory courses or teachers should also have a dedicated course for it, everybody agrees that problem solving skills…

Paoletti, Teo J. – Mathematics Teacher, 2013
To engage students, many teachers wish to connect the mathematics they are teaching to other branches of mathematics or to real-world applications. The lesson presented in this article, which uses the algebraic skill of finding the equation of a line between two points and the geometric axiom that any two points define a line, does both. A…

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…

Seeley, Cathy L. – ASCD, 2016
Cathy L. Seeley, former president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, turns the spotlight on administrative leaders who are seeking to improve their math programs, offering an overview of what an effective program looks like and examples of actions to take to achieve that goal. "Building a Math-Positive Culture" addresses…

Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie – Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2014
In this important book for pre- and in-service teachers, early math experts Douglas Clements and Julie Sarama show how "learning trajectories" help diagnose a child's level of mathematical understanding and provide guidance for teaching. By focusing on the inherent delight and curiosity behind young children's mathematical reasoning,…

Mistele, Jean M.; Spielman, Laura J. – Democracy & Education, 2009
This article discusses a new preservice teacher mathematics course titled Elementary and Middle Grades Mathematics for Social Analysis (Math for Social Analysis). Math for Social Analysis is innovative within mathematics teacher education programs in its theoretical foundation, goals, and approach. The course rests on an assertion that integrating…

Zazkis, Rina; Leikin, Roza – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2010
For the purpose of our research we define Advanced Mathematical Knowledge (AMK) as knowledge of the subject matter acquired during undergraduate studies at colleges or universities. We examine the responses of secondary school teachers about their usage of AMK in teaching. We find that the majority of teachers focus on the purposes and advantages…

Harkness, Shelly Sheats; Thomas, Jonathan – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 2008
This article describes the use of a case report, Multiplication as original sin (Corwin, R. B. (1989). "Multiplication as original sin." "Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 8", 223-225), as an assignment in a mathematics course for preservice elementary teachers. In this case study, Corwin described her experience as a 6th grader when she revealed…

Lim, Kien H. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Magic captivates humans because of their innate capacity to be intrigued and a desire to resolve their curiosity. In a mathematics classroom, algorithms akin to magic tricks can be an effective tool to engage students in thinking and problem solving. Tricks that rely on the power of mathematics are especially suitable for students to experience an…

Morin, Joe; Samelson, Vicki M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
Representations that create informative visual displays are powerful tools for communicating mathematical concepts. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics encourages the use of manipulatives (NCTM 2000). Manipulative materials are often used to present initial representations of basic numerical principles to young children, and it is…

Northcote, Maria – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2015
Use of technology in the mathematics classroom has the potential to advance children's learning of mathematics and enhance their attitudes about mathematics. When used in conjunction with purposeful planning, teachers can use technological tools to reinforce their pedagogical intentions and to facilitate relevant learning activities for students.…
