Lee, Mi Yeon; Francis, Dionne Cross – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Children's literature can provide useful contexts for teaching mathematics. In this article, the authors discuss the use of the children's book "Measuring Penny" (Leedy 1997) to support Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) related to length measurement. The authors first describe three types of misconceptions…

Buchheister, Kelley; Jackson, Christa; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Equitable instruction is reflected in how students are positioned in the classroom and how their identities evolve through purposeful interactions that value and recognize the intellectual capacity of each student. In this article, the authors describe how a kindergarten teacher planned and facilitated a geometry lesson that attended to the…

Rumsey, Chepina; Guarino, Jody; Gildea, Rachael; Cho, Christina Y.; Lockhart, Bethany – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Early career K-grade 2 teachers in a yearlong project explored discourse and mathematical argumentation through monthly professional development (PD) sessions. The goal of the project was to develop an understanding of the types of K-grade 2 tasks that promote argumentation, the types of discourse and argumentation that K-grade 2 students engage…

Ebby, Caroline B.; Hulbert, Elizabeth T.; Fletcher, Nicole – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Assessing student learning traditionally involves determining whether students can solve a certain percentage of problems correctly, under the assumption that this achievement indicates they have the knowledge and understanding they need to progress to new topics. This article explores what teachers can learn from looking closely at student…

Suh, Jennifer; Birkhead, Sara; Farmer, Rachelle Romero; Galanti, Terrie; Nietert, Alexandrea; Bauer, Tyler; Seshaiyer, Padmanabhan – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

The sandwich problem described in this article would likely be considered more appropriate for third grade or above. However, as members of the research team for a lesson study involving teachers from kindergarten through fourth grade, the authors saw kindergarten students rise to the challenge. The authors invite readers to review two scenarios,…

Tamargo, Vi; Johnston, Tod – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

The right types of technology can create new opportunities for students to demonstrate mathematical understandings and can strengthen existing formative assessment practices. The authors write that they frequently use the Math Learning Center apps--covering the range of manipulatives and models--to empower students to explain their thinking. The…

Strayton, Marianne V.; Lawton, Lisa Watts – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

At the start of every school year, teachers typically wonder what their new students know coming into the grade level. Sometimes, though, they place too much emphasis on what children do not know or have forgotten over summer break. After all, those gaps can be glaring. Helping their students grow is like helping an acorn grow; they must watch for…

Shumway, Jessica F.; Hoggan, Jessica – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

The standards from the Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA) domain in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) build on one another across the grades (CCSSI 2010). Understanding each grade level's OA standards is necessary within the broader context of the K-grade 5 OA standards. In this article, the authors share their…

Rawlins, Debra; Hernandez, Natasha; Miller, William – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

A second-grade class visits Saint John's Food Pantry each year and spends the morning learning about the needs of the community. Then students pitch in and help the staff for a few hours. When the children return to school, they create signs advertising a canned food drive, and they place collection boxes at various locations around the school.…

Ding, Meixia – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Tape diagrams, also known as strip diagrams, bar models, fraction strips, or length models, are linear representations that can be used to effectively model quantitative relationships during problem solving. Tape diagrams are a powerful model recommended by the Common Core, but they are relatively new to teachers and students in the United States.…

Whitacre, Ian; Schoen, Robert C.; Champagne, Zachary; Goddard, Andrea – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Data (Schoen et al. 2016) suggests that because many students' understanding of subtraction is limited by thinking about the operation only as take-away or by using a default procedure, such as the standard subtraction algorithm in the United States, second graders are much more likely to solve 100 minus 3 correctly than 201 minus 199. This…

Thomas, Amanda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Increasing availability of digital devices in elementary school classrooms presents exciting new opportunities for teachers to support the teaching and learning of mathematics. Although many of the math applications available for these devices focus on drill and practice of mathematical procedures, screencasting apps can help support effective…

Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

As a parent, the author stepped into his child's class on a Friday morning to a room buzzing with activity. Parents walked around the room, coffee and bagel in hand, reading stories that their child (and others) had drafted, revised, written, and illustrated. Students eagerly shared their stories and drawings, cherishing the comments and praise…

Gresham, Gina; Shannon, Tracy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Mathematics discourse is a teaching approach that encourages student discussion and reveals an understanding of concepts as students engage in mathematical reasoning and debate (Cobb 2006). Grabowski and Ke (2007) posit that students have significantly higher achievement and positive attitudes toward mathematics after participating in gaming…
