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…

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…

Bicer, Ali; Capraro, Robert M.; Capraro, Mary M. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM] noted that middle and high school students are expected to be able to both explain inequalities by using mathematical symbols and understand meanings by interpreting the solutions of inequalities. Unfortunately, research has revealed that not only do middle and high school students hold…

Gunter, Melissa D. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
Writing about mathematics holds a wealth of benefits for students. When students are given opportunities to write in math class, it helps develop mathematical thinking and language, encourages self-reflection, and provides a better way to organize ideas. Many teachers incorporate journaling and other types of reflective writing into their…

Bilgin, Ali; Boedeker, Peter; Capraro, Robert M.; Capraro, Mary M. – Online Submission, 2015
Vocabulary is at the surface level of language usage; thus, students need to develop mathematical and scientific vocabulary to be able to explicitly communicate their mathematical and scientific reasoning with others. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) have both created…

Goodwin, Chris; Ortiz, Enrique – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015
Modeling using mathematics and making inferences about mathematical situations are becoming more prevalent in most fields of study. Descriptive statistics cannot be used to generalize about a population or make predictions of what can occur. Instead, inference must be used. Simulation and sampling are essential in building a foundation for…
