Seiboldt, Cassandra R.; Males, Lorraine M.; Males, Joshua R. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019

Beginning a teaching career and working to prepare and support beginning teachers is a roller-coaster of successes and puzzling moments. In this article, author Cassandra (Cassie) Seiboldt shares how she learned to manage her first years of teaching by purposefully planning through anticipating student thinking and solutions, and the positive…

Fromhold, Albert T., Jr. – Mathematics Teacher, 2005

The method of integration by parts is one of the most useful in integral calculus. Among the most important applications is the integration of differentials involving products, differentials in involving logarithms, and differentials involving inverse circular functions.

Besteman, Nathan; Ferdinands, John – Mathematics Teacher, 2005

Another way to divide a line segment discovered by Nathan Besteman is described along with Euclid's and the GLaD construction. The related projects and problems that teachers of geometry can assign to their students are also presented.

Paul, Clyde – Mathematics Teacher, 2005

Available research supports a belief that a high-quality mathematics education for high school students cannot be accomplished unless a highly qualified mathematics teacher is in the classroom. This author primarily addresses the need for small, rural schools in Missouri to employ such highly-qualified mathematics teachers, although he also states…

Roach, David; Gibson, David; Weber, Keith – Mathematics Teacher, 2004

Students learn more when they attempt to make sense of a mathematical situation they face. For example, a question like why square root of 25 is not + or - 5. Providing the intermediate steps and the reasoning of a technique with graphs can help make better sense of mathematics.

Kitchen, Richard S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2004

The challenges in developing discursive classrooms in high-poverty, rural schools motivate less verbal students to communicate. Students tend to resist mathematics education reforms and classroom discourses.

Belcastro, Sarah-Marie – Mathematics Teacher, 2004

Mathematical contests should be decentralized to allow access to non competitive activities so as to enable students to participate and succeed in Mathematics. These activities should be compellingly interesting so that students enjoy learning about proofs and abstract structures rather than just solving problems.

Nandor, M. J. – Mathematics Teacher, 2004

The greatest benefit of including leap year in the calculation is not to increase precision, but to show students that a problem can be solved without such presumption. A birthday problem is analyzed showing that calculating a leap-year birthday probability is not a frivolous computation.

Kersaint, Gladis; Chappell, Michaele F. – Mathematics Teacher, 2004

Teachers often wrongly presume that all students would interpret a three-dimensional image presented in a two-dimensional manner in the same way. They need to be specific as to how questions are stated especially in real-life situations, where alternative interpretations are possible.

Groth, Randall E.; Powell, Nancy N. – Mathematics Teacher, 2004

While helping high school students develop statistical thinking, teachers need to engage them in all phases of investigative cycle. Students should master some of the nonmathematical elements of the cycle involved in identifying a problem, creating a plan of attack and gathering necessary data.
