Did you mean mathematics AND teacher AND note?

Switzer, J. Matt – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM's) "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" outlines eight teaching practices for effective teaching and learning of mathematics (NCTM 2014). One of the teaching practices, "elicit and use evidence of student thinking," states, "Effective teaching of…

Banse, Holland W.; Palacios, Natalia A.; Merritt, Eileen G.; Rimm-Kaufman, Sara E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

Facilitating productive discussions in the mathematics classroom is a challenge for many teachers. Discourse--student communication of mathematical ideas with teachers and peers--provides a platform on which students share their understanding, clarify misperceptions, and evaluate ideas. If students are unable to access and participate in…

Casa, Tutita M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2013

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM 1991, 2000) recommends that students be positioned as sense makers who weigh one another's ideas and judge their mathematical validity. The instructional tool discussed in this article helps students engage in discussions that foster student reasoning, then settle on correct mathematics.…

Polly, Drew – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2011

Students' use of technology allows them to generate and manipulate multiple representations of a concept, compute numbers with relative ease, and focus more on mathematical concepts and higher-order thinking skills. In elementary school mathematics classrooms, students develop higher-order thinking skills by completing complex tasks that require…

Howse, Tashana D.; Howse, Mark E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014

Geometry is the branch of mathematics that addresses spatial sense and geometric reasoning. Students begin to understand geometry through direct interaction with their physical world. Because it is the study of the physical attributes of the environment, geometry has relevance for every student; the world becomes a big classroom. As students see,…

English, Lyn D. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014

An exciting event had occurred for the grade 3 classes at Woodlands State School. A new play space designated for the older grades had now been opened to the third graders. In sharing their excitement over this "real treat, real privilege," the teachers invited the children to find out more about playgrounds and, in particular, their new…

Barta, Jim; Kyriopoulos, Joan – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014

In the rural community of Santa Avelina in the Highlands of Guatemala, it indeed takes a village to develop children's mathematical understanding through a partnership among school, home, and community. Connections to real-life applications, such as the planting and growing of corn, shape the learning experiences of these children so that they…

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…

Kinman, Robin Lynn – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010

When the author recently turned her attention to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) "Principles and Standards," she was startled to see communication as key. She adjusted her teaching to meet the NCTM Communication Standard and promote communication in her classroom by providing a safe environment, developing discourse and…

Godfrey, Connie J.; Stone, Jamalee – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2013

Math games can be powerful tools in helping students achieve automaticity in basic addition and related subtraction facts if both teachers and students use them purposefully. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM 2000), developing a solid mathematical foundation is essential for every child in prekindergarten through…

Walter, Hope A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Discourse in mathematics classrooms has been at the forefront of mathematics reform for years. Of the eight NCTM Mathematics Teaching Practices, four relate specifically to the use of discussion, questioning, and the analysis of student thinking that is based on discourse. As an answer to the demand for discourse within many mathematics classroom,…

Baker, Courtney; Knapp, Melinda C.; Galanti, Terrie – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Acknowledging the critical role of mathematics coaches in enhancing teacher capacity, positively influencing teacher beliefs, and increasing teacher investment in professional development, NCTM's "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (2014) calls on coaches to "take action." However, coaches seek…

Ebby, Caroline B.; Hulbert, Elizabeth T.; Fletcher, Nicole – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Assessing student learning traditionally involves determining whether students can solve a certain percentage of problems correctly, under the assumption that this achievement indicates they have the knowledge and understanding they need to progress to new topics. This article explores what teachers can learn from looking closely at student…

Huinker, DeAnn – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Mathematics education at the high school level is not working for many students. Although there has been steady improvement in mathematics learning at the elementary and middle school levels across the United States, for the past decade, student achievement has remained essentially flat at the high school level (NCES 2015, 2016). One possible…
