Sole, Marla A. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has called on teachers to create supportive and equitable classroom environments, to steadfastly advocate that all students can learn mathematics, to hold high expectations for all students and to adopt practices that offer students the opportunity to excel (NCTM 2014). The overarching aim of…

Risser, H. Smith; Waddell, Glenn – Educational Media International, 2018

Mathematics teachers are using Twitter as a backchannel at conferences. Understanding whether teachers are using Twitter differently at traditional conferences like the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Annual as compared to new conference models like TwitterMathCamp (TMC) is important. Tweets surrounding the 2015 NCTM Annual and…

Perrin, John Robert – School Science and Mathematics, 2012

This study examined the extent to which seventh- and eighth-grade mathematics teachers are aware of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards documents, Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics and Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and agree with NCTM's vision of school mathematics as expressed in…

Smith, Margaret; Bill, Victoria; Raith, Mary Lynn – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018

The vision of mathematics learning advocated by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) for twenty-five years (1989, 1991, 2000, 2014) positions students as active learners, constructing their knowledge of mathematics through exploration, discussion, and reflection. World-class standards put into place by states and provinces over…

Tillema, Erik; Hackenberg, Amy – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017

The [National Council of Teachers of Mathematics] NCTM research committee made a recent, urgent call for mathematics education researchers to "examine and deeply reflect on our research practices through an equity lens." With this in mind, we use this paper to reflect on the ways in which Steffe's work has contributed to three facets of…

Kirwan, J. Vince – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

Patterning tasks engage students in a core aspect of algebraic thinking-generalization (Kaput 2008). The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Algebra Standard states that students in grades 9-12 should "generalize patterns using explicitly defined and recursively defined functions" (NCTM 2000, p. 296). Although educators…

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…

Umphrey, Jan – Principal Leadership, 2011

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) is a voice and advocate for mathematics educators, working to ensure that all students receive equitable mathematics learning of the highest quality. To help teachers and school leaders understand the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and to point out how the CCSSM can be…

Bulut, Aykut; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019

According to the principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM, 2000], teaching mathematics needs well equipped teachers in terms of knowledge because of its complex structure. Moreover, teachers' knowledge and technology are an important issue to build up and enhance students' learning. Qualified teachers should know how and…

Kosko, Karl Wesley; Gao, Yang – Educational Policy, 2017

Mathematical communication has been an important feature of standards documents since National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM) (1989) "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards." Such an emphasis has influenced content standards of states from then to present. This study examined how effective the prevalence of various forms of…

Amidon, Joel C.; Trevathan, Morgan L. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016

Raising expectations is nothing new. Every iteration of standards elevates the expectations for what students should know and be able to do. The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) is no exception, with standards for content and practice that move beyond memorization of traditional algorithms to "make sense of problems and…

Ziegler, Cindy – ProQuest LLC, 2017

In a local middle school, students were not meeting standards on the state mathematics tests. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore mathematics teachers' perspectives on effective mathematics instruction vis-a-vis the principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). Within this framework, the 6 principles in the…
