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…

Hefty, Lukas J. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM's) "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (2000) outlines fi ve Process Standards that are essential for developing deep understanding of mathematics: (1) Problem Solving; (2) Reasoning and Proof; (3) Communication; (4) Connections; and (5) Representation. The Common Core…

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…

Marston, Jennifer L.; Muir, Tracey; Livy, Sharyn – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2013

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the Australian National Curriculum encourage the integration of literacy and numeracy, and "Teaching Children Mathematics" ("TCM") regularly includes articles on incorporating picture books into the mathematics program. Marston has developed a new framework (2010) to assist teachers in…

Burton, Megan; Mims, Patricia – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012

Learning through meaningful problem solving is integral in any successful mathematics program (Carpenter et al. 1999). The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) promotes the use of problem solving as a means to deepen understanding of all content areas within mathematics (NCTM 2000). This article describes a first-grade lesson that…

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,…

Amirshokoohi, Aidin; Wisniewski, Daniel P. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

The aim of this article is to discuss key elements of a constructivist-based elementary mathematics methods course and the role of each component in enhancing elementary school teacher candidates' mathematical understanding, interest in, and confidence with learning and teaching mathematics while decreasing their math-related anxiety and fear. The…

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…

Gibbons, Lynsey K.; Knapp, Melinda C.; Lind, Teresa – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Curiosity about student thinking lies at the heart of great mathematics teaching. When teachers are curious about and grounded in their students' thinking, their proficiency at eliciting, interpreting, and responding to student ideas increases (NCTM 2014). Coaching conversations that focus on students' thinking can support teachers in developing…

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…
