Sole, Marla A. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has called on teachers to create supportive and equitable classroom environments, to steadfastly advocate that all students can learn mathematics, to hold high expectations for all students and to adopt practices that offer students the opportunity to excel (NCTM 2014). The overarching aim of…

Tillema, Erik; Hackenberg, Amy – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
The [National Council of Teachers of Mathematics] NCTM research committee made a recent, urgent call for mathematics education researchers to "examine and deeply reflect on our research practices through an equity lens." With this in mind, we use this paper to reflect on the ways in which Steffe's work has contributed to three facets of…

Kosko, Karl Wesley; Gao, Yang – Educational Policy, 2017
Mathematical communication has been an important feature of standards documents since National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM) (1989) "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards." Such an emphasis has influenced content standards of states from then to present. This study examined how effective the prevalence of various forms of…

Ziegler, Cindy – ProQuest LLC, 2017
In a local middle school, students were not meeting standards on the state mathematics tests. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore mathematics teachers' perspectives on effective mathematics instruction vis-a-vis the principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). Within this framework, the 6 principles in the…

Briars, Diane J.; Larson, Matt; Strutchens, Marilyn E.; Barnes, David – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2015
In his commentary "The Collective Black and 'Principles to Actions,'" Martin (2015) offers a thought-provoking critique of "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM], 2014). Martin (2015) states that the mathematics education community, in general, and the…

McKinney, Sueanne E.; Chappell, Shannan; Berry, Robert Q.; Hickman, Bythella T. – Preventing School Failure, 2009
Researchers have given increased attention to the teaching and learning of mathematics since the release of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)'s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM). Despite the clear and focused goals, recommendations, and standards set by the NCTM (2000), a majority of classrooms continue to…

Hong, Dae S. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
In its mathematics standards, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) states that problem solving is an integral part of all mathematics learning and exposure to problem solving strategies should be embedded across the curriculum. Furthermore, by high school, students should be able to use, decide and invent a wide range of strategies.…

Saclarides, Evthokia Stephanie; Gerardo, Juan Manuel – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Consistently implementing meaningful assessment that supports student learning is challenging for any teacher (NCTM 2014) but especially for beginning teachers who already have so much on their plates! From the authors' collective experiences--which range from teaching eighth-grade students to supervising and teaching methods courses for…

Mills, Jamie D.; Holloway, Charles E. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2013
This study investigated the relationship between student achievement in statistics and factors at the student and teacher/classroom levels using the US 8th-grade Data and Chance content domain from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, 2007 (TIMSS, 2007). Using variables that have been linked to mathematics and statistics…

Punches-Guntsch, Christina M.; Kenney, Erin N. – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
Many students will need remedial work in mathematics during their high school years. Some sort of help will be needed to fulfill the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM's) (2000) vision of a mathematics classroom that involves students having access to mathematically rich problems and being engaged in solving them. The high school…

Nese, Joseph F. T.; Lai, Cheng-Fei; Anderson, Daniel; Park, Bitnara Jasmine; Tindal, Gerald; Alonzo, Julie – Behavioral Research and Teaching, 2010
The purpose of this study was to examine the alignment of the easyCBM[R] mathematics benchmark and progress monitoring measures to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics "Curriculum Focal Points" (NCTM, 2006). Based on Webb's alignment model (1997, 2002), we collected expert judgments on individual math items across a sampling of forms…

White, La Donna – ProQuest LLC, 2012
As of 2001 with the mandates issued under No Child Left Behind, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) revised its standards to ensure that all students receive a quality mathematics education (NCTM, 2008). The 2009 report from U.S. Department of Education revealed that there is an increase in the number of minority students…

McKinney, Sueanne; Hinton, KaaVonia – Linworth, 2010
Two experts on education offer a rich and diverse selection of children's literature and teaching strategies for the K-8 mathematics classroom. To date, a vast majority of classrooms continue to fall short in the implementation and direction of NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM), in part because most of these classrooms…

Tindal, Gerald; Alonzo, Julie; Anderson, Daniel – Behavioral Research and Teaching, 2009
We developed equivalent, alternate forms of easyCBM[R] in reading (n=20 forms) and mathematics (n=13 forms) with different skills reflective of the National Reading Panel (NRP) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), respectively. We then took three forms to use as screening measures in the fall, winter, and spring so educators…
