FitzPatrick, Daniel L.; Dominguez, Victoria S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2017
Teaching persistence and problem solving must begin with selecting a problem that can be solved mathematically, that allows for multiple methods of solving, and that generally captures the attention and curiosity of the student (Marcus and Fey 2003; NCTM 1991; Van de Walle 2003). This article shows how a STEM three-dimensional (3D) printing…

Williams, Madelyn M.; Casa, Tutita M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2011
As recommended by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the first author regularly relies on her first graders' writing to assess their reasoning about important math concepts. Their writing serves as a culminating activity that allows her to better assess the depth of each student's understanding following class activities and…

Raisor, Jill M.; Hudson, Rick A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
Early childhood provides a time of crucial growth in all developmental domains. Prekindergarten is an optimal time for young children to use objects of play as a medium to explore new cognitive concepts, including mathematical structure. Mathematical structure plays an important role in providing students a means to reason about mathematics,…

Baker, Katherine – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Reform-based mathematics instruction emphasizes that mathematics is learned through reasoning and sense-making rather than strict memorization and is taught through facilitation rather than telling (NCTM, 1989, 1991, 1995, 2000). Teachers' engagement with student thinking to inform instruction is central to such teaching. Engagement with student…

Linder, Sandra M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Many models of planning and lesson construction in the United States advocate an objective-driven approach whereby teachers create performance-based goals that their students should accomplish by the end of the lesson. Teachers then evaluate lessons by determining if students have accomplished these objectives. Often, this model of planning…

Prasad, Priya V. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
How can we, as teachers, encourage students to move from drawing geometric objects to constructing them and thereby build their mathematical reasoning skills? One way to encourage students to construct instead of draw shapes and to help students develop more robust understandings of geometric relationships and constructions is to use interactive…
