Ilaria, Daniel – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2017
Online teacher professional development is becoming more prevalent as the ability to harness technology to bring teachers and resources together becomes easier. Research is needed, however, to determine the effectiveness of models and to share practices that increase teacher knowledge of content and pedagogy. This study examines how a hybrid…

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…

DeJarnette, Anna F.; González, Gloriana – Mathematics Educator, 2013
Current research and professional organizations call for greater emphasis on reasoning and sense making in algebra (Chazan, 2000; Cuoco, Goldenberg, & Mark, 1996; Harel & Sowder, 2005; National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM], 2009, 2010). This paper illustrates how students in an Algebra II class had opportunities to develop…

Fonkert, Karen L. – Mathematics Teacher, 2010
Students are more likely to develop a deep conceptual understanding of mathematics when they interact with and discuss their thoughts with others. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) (1989, 2000) has recommended that students be active learners--communicating with one another, conjecturing, exploring, and justifying claims by…

Ozel, Serkan; Yetkiner, Zeynep Ebrar; Capraro, Robert M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2008
Technology integration in mathematics classrooms is important to the field of education, not only because today's society is becoming more and more advanced and reliant upon technology but also because schools are beginning to embrace technology as an essential part of their curricula. The Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (National…

Özgün-Koca, S. Asli – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The Common Core State Standards (CCSSI 2010) and NCTM's (2014) "Principles to Actions" agree that "for meaningful learning of mathematics, tools and technology must be indispensable features of the classroom . . . that support students in exploring mathematics as well as in making sense of concepts and procedures and engaging in…

Patenaude, Raymond E. – ProQuest LLC, 2013
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) are founded on a long history of mathematics education research emphasizing the importance of teaching mathematics for understanding. The CCSSM along with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) recommend the use of technology in the teaching of mathematics. New mobile…

Wachira, Patrick; Keengwe, Jared; Onchwari, Grace – AACE Journal, 2008
Many preservice teachers report having had little exposure on the use of technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Without guidance on the appropriate use of technology, prospective teachers are left to form their own beliefs about what is appropriate technology use. This study assessed preservice teacher beliefs and conceptions of…

Murawska, Jaclyn M.; Zollman, Alan – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015
Although discussions about inductive reasoning can be traced back thousands of years (Fitelson 2011), the implementation of the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) within the Common Core State Standards (CCSSI 2010) is generating renewed attention to how students learn mathematics. The third SMP, "Construct viable arguments and critique…

Zelkowski, Jeremy S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2013
Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM 2000) states, "Technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students' learning." The focus on reasoning and sense making with technology in the lesson presented in this article will enable students to do more…

Bouck, Emily C.; Flanagan, Sara – Journal of Special Education Technology, 2009
Technology is a natural part of education for all students across a variety of subjects, including mathematics, as educators work to prepare students for tomorrow's work force and align their curriculum and teaching with national standards such those developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM, 2000). This article reviews…

Mendiburo, Maria; Hasselbring, Ted – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
Fractions are among the most difficult mathematical concepts for elementary school students to master (Behr, Harel, Post, & Lesh, 1992; Bezuk & Cramer, 1989; Moss & Case, 1999). Research indicates that manipulatives (e.g. fractions circles, fractions strips) positively impact students' conceptual and procedural understanding of…

Kaplan, Rochelle Goldberg; Alon, Sandra – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2013
Technology has the potential to make complex and abstract mathematical ideas more accessible to students, especially to those who have difficulties with challenging curricular concepts (NCTM 2000, NCTM 2008). What one sometimes forgets is that technology is a tool and, like any tool, can be used productively only in the hands of a skilled…

Akcay, Ahmet Oguz – ProQuest LLC, 2016
Technology has changed every aspect of our lives such as communication, shopping, games, business, and education. Technology has been used for decades in the teaching and learning environment in K-12 education and higher education, especially in mathematics education where the use of instructional technology has great potential. Today's students…

Flores, Edna Horton – ProQuest LLC, 2009
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) asserts that a goal of mathematics education, in Prekindergarten through grade 12, is to develop mathematical power for "all" students, and that educational equity is the nucleus of this goal. Nevertheless, researchers have found that equity for all students in mathematics education has not…
