Kirwan, J. Vince – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

Patterning tasks engage students in a core aspect of algebraic thinking-generalization (Kaput 2008). The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Algebra Standard states that students in grades 9-12 should "generalize patterns using explicitly defined and recursively defined functions" (NCTM 2000, p. 296). Although educators…

Wiebe Berry, Ruth A.; Kim, Namsook – Journal of Educational Research, 2008

The authors examined aspects of teacher talk during mathematics lessons in a 1st-grade inclusion classroom. Using content analytical coding methods, they analyzed 4 lessons--each taught by a different teacher in the classroom. Results showed that the patterns of teacher talk across all 4 teachers were chiefly recitational and lacking…

Schwartz, Arthur E. – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2007

With fewer than half of high school graduates prepared for college-level mathematics, there has been a renewed focus on both the content and methods of teaching mathematics. The situation is particularly critical at two-year colleges, which enroll the most diverse student population in higher education. Statistics show that 57 percent of students…
