Olson, Travis A.; Olson, Melfried; Slovin, Hannah – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2015
Do your students think they can model ratios with sets of discrete objects and combine them to show the addition of ratios? Do they believe that equivalent ratios are based on additive relationships rather than multiplicative ones? What tasks can you offer what questions can you ask to determine what your students know or don't know and move them…

Bay-Williams, Jennifer M.; Bush, Sarah B.; Peters, Susan A.; McGatha, Maggie B. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2015
To succeed in college, career, and life, students need to become financially literate. But understanding the basics of a long-term investment or a short-term loan is not enough without the math skills to make financially sound choices. In the already full curriculum of middle schools today, how can teachers find room to include financial literacy?…

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2015
Do your students think a triangle can be constructed from any three given line segments? Do they believe that a transformation affects only the pre-image--not the whole plane? Do they understand that examples--no matter how many they find--cannot prove a conjecture but one counterexample is sufficient to disprove it? "What tasks can you…
