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,…

Small, Marian – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2009

Using differentiated instruction in the classroom can be a challenge, especially when teaching mathematics. This book cuts through the difficulties with two powerful and universal strategies that teachers can use across all math content: Open Questions and Parallel Tasks. Specific strategies and examples for grades Kindergarten - 8 are organized…

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…

Minetola, Janice; Serr, Konnie; Nelson, Laureen – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012

Teachers have the opportunity to capitalize on a vast array of real-world, two- and three-dimensional objects as they guide students in developing a conceptual understanding of geometric shapes. An important component of the NCTM Standards is to use teaching methodologies that engage children in making real-world connections to the mathematics…
