Huhn, Craig – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

When the author was first charged with getting a group of students to understand the correlation coefficient, he did not anticipate the topic would challenge his own understanding, let alone cause him to eventually question the very nature of mathematics itself. On the surface, the idea seemed straightforward, one that millions of students across…

Cirillo, Michelle – Mathematics Teacher, 2009

As she sat in a high school geometry class and observed a beginning teacher, Matt (a pseudonym), teaching proof for the first time, the author was reminded of her own experiences in teaching formal proof to secondary school students. Matt seemed to struggle with some of the same challenges she encountered when she began teaching proof. For…

Baker, Harold – Mathematics Teacher, 1992

Suggested are ways to improve the SAT and its face validity. Suggestions include greater emphasis on more-realistic problems, inclusion of realistic percent problems, modification of the multiple-choice format, and the use of the National Council of Mathematics "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards" as a guide to construct the test.
