Did you mean mathematics AND teacher AND note?

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…

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,…

Safi, Farshid; Desai, Siddhi – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017

"Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (NCTM 2014) gives teachers access to an insightful, research-informed framework that outlines ways to promote reasoning and sense making. Specifically, as students transition on their mathematical journey through middle school and beyond, their knowledge and use of…

Prasad, Priya V. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016

How can we, as teachers, encourage students to move from drawing geometric objects to constructing them and thereby build their mathematical reasoning skills? One way to encourage students to construct instead of draw shapes and to help students develop more robust understandings of geometric relationships and constructions is to use interactive…

Paoletti, Teo J. – Mathematics Teacher, 2013

To engage students, many teachers wish to connect the mathematics they are teaching to other branches of mathematics or to real-world applications. The lesson presented in this article, which uses the algebraic skill of finding the equation of a line between two points and the geometric axiom that any two points define a line, does both. A…

Ichinose, Cherie Lynn; Martinez-Cruz, Armando M. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) propose a new vision for the mathematics classroom with updated content standards and Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP). These practices are founded on NCTM processes (Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Communication, Representation, and Connections) and abilities…

Keazer, Lindsay M.; Menon, Rahul S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

This article argues that the practices of reasoning and sense making are critical for developing students' mathematical literacy. Seven mathematics teachers collaborated throughout a school year to discuss the ideas proposed in Reasoning and Sense Making (NCTM 2009) and put them into practice through action research. Conducting action research,…

Jacobbe, Tim – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2008

According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) (1989, 2000), students at all levels should be exposed to geometry and measurement topics. Standards documents have identified the importance of primary school students selecting appropriate units for measurements in one- and two-dimensional space (NCTM 1989, 2000). This paper…

Cetner, Michelle – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

When thinking about student reasoning and sense making, teachers must consider the nature of tasks given to students along with how to plan to use the tasks in the classroom. Students should be presented with tasks in a way that encourages them to draw connections between algebraic and geometric concepts. This article focuses on the idea that it…

Roberts, Sally K.; Borum, Viveka O. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2012

Students often view mathematics as a set of unrelated facts and procedures and fail to make the connections between and among related topics. One role of a teacher is to help students understand that mathematics is an interrelated discipline. Another role is to assist students in the scaffolding of their knowledge so that they can make connections…

Manouchehri, Azita – Mathematics Teacher, 2007

"Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (NCTM 2000) proposes that mathematics instruction provide opportunities for students to engage in mathematical inquiry and in meaning-making through discourse. Mathematics teachers are encouraged to build on student discoveries in designing subsequent instruction. In this article, the author…

Manouchehri, Azita; Enderson, Mary C.; Pugnucco, Lyle A. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 1998

Addresses some concerns about teaching and learning geometry by describing how The Geometer's Sketchpad software program allows for the implementation of many of the recommendations from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in the mathematics classroom. Explains the types of activities that can be used with the software and…

Kelley, Paul – Mathematics Teacher, 1999

Describes an activity on fractal geometry in which students built a 19-foot-tall Sierpinski pyramid in the Minneapolis Convention Center in conjunction with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM) 75th Annual Meeting in April, 1997. Contains 13 references. (ASK)

Rodrigue, Paulette R.; Robichaux, Rebecca R. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010

Sorting shapes and solving riddles develop and advance children's geometric thinking and understanding while promoting mathematical communication, cooperative learning, and numerous representations. This article presents a brief summary of how children develop an understanding of the properties of geometric shapes as well as a description of the…
