Gold, Lindsay A.; Houston, Michael S.; Bay-Williams, Jennifer M.; Ashurst, John M. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2018
Financial skills, like mathematical ones, must be built on a firm foundation. Whether one is putting money in a piggy bank or a 401(k), and purchasing a toy car or a real one, everyone needs the understanding of financial issues and math skills necessary for making sound decisions. The elementary classroom is the perfect place to introduce…

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,…

Nielsen, Maria E.; Bostic, Jonathan D. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
"Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (NCTM 2014) emphasizes eight teaching practices for effective mathematics teaching, one of which is to "use and connect multiple representations" (NCTM 2014, p. 24). An action that describes how teachers might promote this practice is to "allocate substantial…

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…

Cannon, Tenille – ProQuest LLC, 2016
Mathematics can be conceptualized in different ways. Policy documents such as the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) (2000) and the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) (2010), classify mathematics in terms of mathematical content (e.g., quadratic functions, Pythagorean theorem) and mathematical activity in the form of…

Isler, Isil; Marum, Tim; Stephens, Ana; Blanton, Maria; Knuth, Eric; Gardiner, Angela Murphy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014
The study of functions has traditionally received the most attention at the secondary level, both in curricula and in standards documents--for example, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) and "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM] 2000). However, the…

Sole, Marla A. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Every day, students collect, organize, and analyze data to make decisions. In this data-driven world, people need to assess how much trust they can place in summary statistics. The results of every survey and the safety of every drug that undergoes a clinical trial depend on the correct application of appropriate statistics. Recognizing the…
