Hernández, Maria L.; Levy, Rachel; Felton-Koestler, Mathew D.; Zbiek, Rose Mary – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

In 2015, mathematics leaders and instructors from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP), with input from NCTM, came together to write the "Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Mathematical Modeling Education" (GAIMME) report as a resource for…

Jett, Christopher C.; Stinson, David W.; Williams, Brian A. – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

The social and educational status of black male youth in the United States has been receiving increasing attention. In February 2014, President Barack Obama announced a new national initiative--My Brother's Keeper--for helping black boys and male youth or, to speak more generally, boys and young men of color, to "stay on track; providing the…

Stevens, Alexis; Stevens, John – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

How is the president of the United States elected? Why is this the method used? Is this the best and most efficient way of electing the president of the United States? Questions such as these are well suited for a mathematics discussion that promotes numeracy, because, "notwithstanding the immense value of numeracy for education and vocation,…

Roscoe, Matt B. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

In 1996, a new proof of the Pythagorean theorem appeared in the "College Mathematics Journal" (Burk 1996). The occurrence is, perhaps, not especially notable given the fact that proofs of the Pythagorean theorem are numerous in the study of mathematics. Elisha S. Loomis in his treatise on the subject, "The Pythagorean…

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…

Urbina-Lilback, Ruth N. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

The statistics about community college developmental math level and completion rates can seem disheartening, especially for those who work with these students day-to-day and know their life stories. When it comes to teaching her students, the author chooses not to focus on the statistics. Instead, she pays attention to their varied career goals…

Adams, Anne E.; Pegg, Jerine; Case, Melissa – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

With the acceptance by many states of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, new emphasis is being placed on students' ability to engage in mathematical practices such as understanding problems (including word problems), reading and critiquing arguments, and making explicit use of definitions (CCSSI 2010). Engaging students in…

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…

Moore, Amanda J.; Gillett, Matthew R.; Steele, Michael D. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

The Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice (CCSSI 2010) and NCTM's "Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making" (2009) present a vision of high school classrooms in which the majority of the activity involves students working on rich mathematical problems and engaging in mathematical discourse. This model…

Galluzzo, Benjamin J.; McGivney-Burelle, Jean; Wagstrom, Rikki B. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

Human beings are having a profound impact on the environment. The opportunity to investigate this timely issue during one or two class periods gives algebra and precalculus students insight into a sustainability topic of great international concern--carbon footprints. Students use mathematical thinking in matters that are pertinent to their…

Sherman, Milan; Cayton, Charity – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

Students' ability to use appropriate tools strategically is an important skill of mathematically proficient students (SMP 5, CCSSI 2010, p. 7). A parallel practice for teachers is using appropriate tools strategically for mathematics instruction. An important element of this practice is that the use of technology depends on the goals of…

Contreras, José N. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

The activity of posing and solving problems can enrich learners' mathematical experiences because it fosters a spirit of inquisitiveness, cultivates their mathematical curiosity, and deepens their views of what it means to do mathematics. To achieve these goals, a mathematical problem needs to be at the appropriate level of difficulty,…

Linares, Leanne A.; Smith, Phil R. – Mathematics Teacher, 2009

A geometry textbook or mathematics journal that prints all the work that mathematicians use as they generate proofs of mathematical results would be rare indeed. The false starts, the tentative conjectures, and the arguments that led nowhere--these are conveniently omitted; only the final successful product is presented to the world. To students…

Paoletti, Teo; Monahan, Ceire; Vishnubhotla, Madhavi – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

GeoGebra is a free tool that has the potential to change both how and what is taught in mathematics. GeoGebra allows teachers and students to explore various mathematical ideas either through the full applet (https://www.geogebra.org/graphing) or by sharing applets via GeoGebra's Materials site (https://www.geogebra. org/materials/). It has many…

Weiss, Michael K.; Moore-Russo, Deborah – Mathematics Teacher, 2012

What does it mean to think like a mathematician? One of the great paradoxes of mathematics education is that, although mathematics teachers are immersed in mathematical work every day of their professional lives, most of them nevertheless have little experience with the kind of work that research mathematicians do. Their ideas of what doing…
