Hawthorne, Casey; Druken, Bridget K. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
Both the Common Core State Standards (CCSSI 2010) and the NCTM Process and Content Standards distinguish between Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) and standards for mathematical content. We believe this distinction is important and note that students often acquire knowledge of mathematical content without necessarily developing the related…

Geist, Melissa; Anthony, Holly; Majors, Twanelle – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Some students tend to lose their love for mathematics as their educational journeys continue. Research has documented the various culprits contributing to this phenomenon, but seldom are solutions offered that can be addressed in one's own classroom. In this article, the authors described their attempt to kindle students' passion for mathematics…

Hurdle, Zach; Warshauer, Max; White, Alex – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The desire to persuade students to avoid strictly memorizing formulas is a recurring theme throughout discussions of curriculum and problem solving. In combinatorics, a branch of discrete mathematics, problems can be easy to write--identify a few categories, add a few restrictions, specify an outcome--yet extremely challenging to solve. A lesson…

Stump, Sheryl L.; Bryan, Joel A.; McConnell, Tom J. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Integrated approaches to education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), especially those set in the context of real-world situations, can motivate and deepen students' learning of the STEM subjects (National Academy of Engineering and National Research Council 2014). This article describes two integrated investigations used…

Gedeborg, Samuel – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
One of the major benefits of the face-to-face teaching environment is that social interaction opportunities are a natural part of the course: Learners meet in the same room for the same allotted period of time each week. This social opportunity is not organic to online courses; therefore, to have this social interaction as a part of online classes…

Ponce, Gregorio A.; Tuba, Imre – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
New strategies can ignite teachers' imagination to create new lessons or adapt lessons created by others. In this article, the authors present the experience of an algebra teacher and his students solving linear and literal equations and explain how the use of ideas found in past NCTM journals helped bring this lesson to life. The…

Seaberg, Rebecca L. – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
In many ways, mathematics classrooms in Finland and Sweden are very similar to what would be considered traditional classrooms in the United States. Classes begin with checking homework and questions, followed by the teacher giving instruction in the new material, and end with students working on their new assignment. There are also interesting…

Gaddy, Angeline K.; Harmon, Shannon E.; Barlow, Angela T.; Milligan, Charles D.; Huang, Rongjin – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
With such publications as "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards" (1989) and "Principles and Standards for School Mathematic" (2000), NCTM has played a significant role in defining a vision for school mathematics. In particular, the Curriculum Principle (NCTM 2000, pp. 14-16) described the need for students to learn important…

Pilgrim, Mary E. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) provide teachers with the expectations and requirements that are meant to prepare K-12 students for college and the workforce (CCSSI 2010b). The Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMPs) emphasize the development of skills and conceptual understanding for students to become proficient in…

Richardson, Kerri; Reynolds, Anne; Schwartz, Catherine S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
The quadrilaterals problem is a particularly rich task, applicable to in-service teachers as well as to the students they teach. The ways in which students engage in this task, the strategies they use, and the mathematics that results align well with this "MT" Focus Issue on flexible mathematical thinking. The authors offer their observations of…

Edwards, Michael Todd; Harper, Suzanne R.; Cox, Dana C. – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
Curriculum standards provide classroom teachers with frameworks to guide instruction during the academic year and throughout a student's schooling. Unfortunately, standards are misconstrued as all-encompassing--as a compendium of all mathematics content that can and should be taught to students. Such a view is unfortunate. Mathematics teachers…

Caulfield, Michael J. – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
What if Stephen Douglas instead of Abraham Lincoln had won the U.S. presidential election of 1860? What if John F. Kennedy had not carried some of the eight states he won by 2 percentage points or fewer in 1960? What if six hundred more people in Florida had voted for Al Gore in 2000? And what if, in that same year, the U.S. House of…

Rubel, Laurie H.; Driskill, Michael; Lesser, Lawrence M. – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
Every two years in the United States, districts in each state elect representatives to the U.S. House of Representatives. The district boundaries are not permanent; rather, they are redrawn every ten years in a process known as redistricting. Mathematics is useful in understanding this important and often contentious process. Redistricting is a…

Gray, Shirley B.; Rice, Zebanya – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
Certain dates stand out in history--October 12, 1492; July 4, 1776; and May 8, 1945, to name a few. Will December 21, 2012, become such a date? The popular media have seized on 12/21/12 to make apocalyptical prognostications, some venturing so far as to predict the end of the world. Scholars reject such predictions. But major archeological finds…

Foster, Colin – Mathematics Teacher, 2011
Too often the discourse of the mathematics classroom is defined as the teacher asking the questions and the students answering them--or trying to. Certainly teachers should not be prohibited from asking questions, but if students are always placed in the position of responding rather than initiating, then one can hardly be surprised if at times…
