Perrin, John Robert – School Science and Mathematics, 2012

This study examined the extent to which seventh- and eighth-grade mathematics teachers are aware of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards documents, Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics and Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and agree with NCTM's vision of school mathematics as expressed in…

Boerst, Timothy; Confrey, Jere; Heck, Daniel; Knuth, Eric; Lambdin, Diana V.; White, Dorothy; Baltzley, Patricia C.; Quander, Judith Reed – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2010

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) is committed to strengthening relations between research and practice and to the development of a coherent knowledge base that is usable in practice. The need to work toward connection and coherence is not unique to the field of mathematics education. Fields such as medicine, software…

Anderson, Daniel; Alonzo, Julie; Tindal, Gerald – Behavioral Research and Teaching, 2012

In this technical report, we describe the results of a study of mathematics items written to align with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in grades 6-8. In each grade, CCSS items were organized into forms, and the reliability of these forms was evaluated along with an experimental form including items aligned with the National Council of…

Leitze, Annette Ricks; Soots, Kristen L. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

Teachers across all grade levels agree that problem solving and reasoning are areas of weakness in students. Assessments among U.S. students indicate that these weaknesses persist (NCTM 2014) in spite of repeated calls that date back more than thirty years for increased problem solving, reasoning, and sense making in our schools. The NCTM is…

Osmanoglu, Aslihan; Koc, Yusuf; Isiksal, Mine – Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, 2013

The purpose of this study was to explore pre-service and in-service mathematics teachers' analyses of student learning in a video case of mathematics instruction via an online learning forum. The study was conducted in the context of three different mathematics methods courses in a 4-year college in the Midwestern United States. Twenty-six…

Magiera, Marta T. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2013

An important goal of school mathematics is to enable students to formulate, approach, and refine problems beyond those they have studied, allowing them to organize and consolidate their mathematical thinking. To achieve this goal, students should be encouraged to develop expertise in a variety of areas, such as problem solving, reasoning and…

Cavanagh, Sean – Education Week, 2009

Three years after calling for a reordering of elementary and middle school math curricula, the nation's largest group of math teachers is urging a new approach to high school instruction, one that aims to build students' ability to choose and apply the most effective problem-solving techniques, in the classroom and in life. Cultivating those…

What Works Clearinghouse, 2008

"Mathematics in Context" is a middle school mathematics curriculum for grades 5 through 8. It was developed to align with the 1989 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum and Evaluation Standards. It is also based on the Dutch Realistic Mathematics Education approach of engaging students in understanding real-life…

Clark, Julie – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2007

Many people believe that the 1989 National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards heralded the biggest mathematics reform of the 20th century. Despite all reform efforts, recent studies indicate that mathematics taught in primary and middle school mainly consists of basic arithmetic tasks that use memorization and repetition. Today…

Gutstein, Eric – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2003

Reports on a 2-year study about teaching and learning mathematics for social justice in an urban, Latino classroom and the role of a National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards-based curriculum. Uses qualitative, practitioner-research methodology. Indicates that the standards-based curriculum was also important in promoting…

Latterell, Carmen M. – 2003

This study investigates how measured problem solving abilities differ by students' mathematics curriculum, traditional or National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards-oriented, when a non-paper-and-pencil test is used as the source of measurement, and if the proposed rubric is efficient and effective for scoring the…

Robicheaux, Ray – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 1996

Illuminates some concerns of teachers about the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum Standards. Demonstrates changes in attitudes of teachers who have sufficient time to assimilate and accommodate the NCTM reforms. (MKR)

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…

Edwards, Susan – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2011

Many preservice teachers are introduced to NCTM's "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (2000) and practices that support those Standards as part of their teacher education programs. They often appear to accept the underlying principles, and many intend to implement this type of instruction in their own classrooms. Unfortunately, as…
