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…

Batista, Lisa Nguyen; Chapin, Suzanne H. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Classroom discourse is critical to helping students learn mathematics. Interacting with peers and the teacher within a classroom community assists students in building their understanding of mathematical concepts. A discourse community, sometimes referred to as a math-talk learning community, is "a classroom community in which the teacher and…

Russo, James A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Three-in-a-Row Lucky Numbers is an engaging, enjoyable, mathematically meaningful, game-based activity involving dice and a hundred chart, which can be used to introduce students to multiplication. The game provides a mechanism for students to explore the structure of multiplication, experiment with the distributive property, and begin to…

Raisor, Jill M.; Hudson, Rick A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

Early childhood provides a time of crucial growth in all developmental domains. Prekindergarten is an optimal time for young children to use objects of play as a medium to explore new cognitive concepts, including mathematical structure. Mathematical structure plays an important role in providing students a means to reason about mathematics,…

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…

Bush, Sarah B.; Karp, Karen S.; Lentz, Tova; Nadler, Jennifer – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Many elementary schools across the nation are scaling back or cutting arts curriculum altogether. This article presents classroom teachers with an activity for integrating art with mathematics. Through a three-phase exploration of reasoning with shapes and their attributes, students will get to know a classmate better, work with defining and…

Reed, Kristen E.; Goldenberg, E. Paul – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

Formative assessment is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to improve students' achievements of intended instructional outcomes. Formative assessment means assessment embedded in instruction. That definition was adopted in 2006 by the Council of Chief State…

McCoy, Ann; Barnett, Joann; Stine, Tammy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

Without a doubt, fractions prove to be a stumbling block for many children. Researchers have suggested a variety of explanations for why this is the case. The introduction of symbolization and operations before the development of conceptual understanding of fractions, a lack of understanding of the role of the numerator and denominator, and an…

Muir, Tracey – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

In Australia, the term "numeracy" is used to describe "the competence and disposition to use mathematics to meet the general demands of life at home, in paid work, and for participation in community and civic life" (Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers 1997, p. 15). The implemented mathematics curriculum is…

Lee, Mi Yeon; Francis, Dionne Cross – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

Measurement comprises an important set of concepts that are fundamental for students to competently navigate and work with objects and structures within their physical environment. Despite their importance, these concepts are difficult for students to grasp, as evidenced by low performance on measurement items on the National Assessment of…

Kling, Gina; Bay-Williams, Jennifer M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

"That was the day I decided I was bad at math." Countless times, preservice and in-service teachers make statements such as this after sharing vivid memories of learning multiplication facts. Timed tests; public competitive games, such as Around the World; and visible displays of who has and has not mastered groups of facts still…

Enderson, Mary C. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

This article presents a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activity, building an air cannon, in a mathematics classroom. It describes an investigation grounded in STEM concepts that elementary and middle school teachers carried out to think about ways of implementing STEM activities into their instruction. This particular…

Eberle, R. Scott – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

A "tessellation" is a pattern of geometric shapes that fulfills three conditions: (1) No gaps exist between the shapes; (2) The shapes do not overlap; and (3) The pattern can go on forever in all directions. Tilings (such as tiling a floor) are familiar to children and provide a rich resource at all grade levels for learning many…

Isler, Isil; Marum, Tim; Stephens, Ana; Blanton, Maria; Knuth, Eric; Gardiner, Angela Murphy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014

The study of functions has traditionally received the most attention at the secondary level, both in curricula and in standards documents--for example, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) and "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM] 2000). However, the…
