Ojose, Bobby – Mathematics Educator, 2008
This paper is based on a presentation given at National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in 2005 in Anaheim, California. It explicates the developmental stages of the child as posited by Piaget. The author then ties each of the stages to developmentally appropriate mathematics instruction. The implications in terms of not imposing…

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.…

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…

Bell, Carol J. – Mathematics Teacher, 2011
Reasoning and Proof is one of the Process Standards set forth in National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM) "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics." Thus, it is important to give students opportunities to build their reasoning skills and aid their understanding of the proof process. Teaching students how to do proofs is a…

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…

Hennessey, Maeghan N.; Higley, Kelli; Chesnut, Steven R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2012
Mathematics teachers face a myriad of instructional obstacles. Since the early 1990s, mathematics education researchers have proposed the use of constructivist practices to counteract these ever-prevalent obstacles. While we do give credit to the choices of instructional activities the constructivist paradigm promotes, there are problems with its…

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…

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…

Obara, Samuel – Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, 2013
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM, 1989, 2000) and the new "Australian Curriculum: Mathematics" for senior secondary (ACARA, 2010) highlight the importance of teaching spatial reasoning as early as preschool when mathematics is introduced. Studies have shown that there is a relationship between spatial abilities and…

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…

Godfrey, Connie J.; Stone, Jamalee – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2013
Math games can be powerful tools in helping students achieve automaticity in basic addition and related subtraction facts if both teachers and students use them purposefully. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM 2000), developing a solid mathematical foundation is essential for every child in prekindergarten through…
