Dougherty, Barbara J.; Karp, Karen S. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2019
Do your students say that one object is "bigger" than another without attending more precisely to the attribute they are comparing? Do they have difficulty naming numbers from 11 to 19? Do some students still count all while their classmates are counting on or counting by tens? What tasks can you offer--what questions can you ask--to…

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2008
Algebra is no longer just for college-bound students. After a widespread push by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and teachers across the country, algebra is now a required part of most curricula. However, students' standardized test scores are not at the level they should be. NCTM's seventieth yearbook takes a look at the…

Silver, Edward A., Ed.; Kenney, Patricia Ann, Ed. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2015
This book's 28 chapters are adapted and updated from articles published in NCTM's "Journal for Research in Mathematics Education" between 2000 and 2010. The authors have rewritten and revised their work to make it clear, understandable, and--most of all--useful for mathematics teachers today. To help teachers even more, these articles…
