Savola, Lasse – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2012
The Finnish National Board of Education has been publishing guidelines for the evaluation of student learning in the comprehensive school since the 1970s. This evaluation is two-fold: 1) during school it guides and supports students along their academic paths and 2) at the conclusion of the comprehensive school it expresses each student's level of…

Dimacali, Allen M. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2012
In conjunction with the adoption and subsequent implementation of the "Common Core State Standards for Mathematics" (CCSSM), state-led consortia are developing next-generation assessments aligned to the CCSSM. This paper discusses the progress and plans of two main coalitions of states--the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for…

Hogrebe, Mark C.; Tate, William F. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2012
Place matters in moderating variable relationships between algebra performance and educational variables because there are differences on the socioeconomic (SES) poverty-affluence continuum that shape local contexts. This article examines relationships between variables for school district demographic composition, teaching and financial contexts,…

Rogness, Jonathan – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
Advances in computer graphics have provided mathematicians with the ability to create stunning visualizations, both to gain insight and to help demonstrate the beauty of mathematics to others. As educators these tools can be particularly important as we search for ways to work with students raised with constant visual stimulation, from video games…

Edwards, Michael Todd; Cox, Dana C. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
In this article, the authors explore framing, a non-multiplicative technique commonly employed by students as they construct similar shapes. When students frame, they add (or subtract) a "border" of fixed width about a geometric object. Although the approach does not yield similar shapes in general, the mathematical underpinnings of…

Kilpatrick, Jeremy – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
The U.S. school mathematics curriculum changed slowly during the last century, and only in the past few decades have there been serious efforts to establish it nationally rather than having it be, at least in principle, locally determined. Waves of change have periodically swept the curricular ocean, but on the seabed, in the classrooms where…

Wolmer, Allen; Khazanov, Leonid – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) are becoming commonplace throughout primary, secondary, and postsecondary classrooms. However, the focus of the associated lesson creation & management software tools delivered with IWBs has been the primary grades, while secondary and postsecondary mathematics lessons have requirements beyond what is delivered…

Offenholley, Kathleen – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
Video games have tremendous potential in mathematics education, yet there is a push to simply add mathematics to a video game without regard to whether the game structure suits the mathematics, and without regard to the level of mathematical thought being learned in the game. Are students practicing facts, or are they problem-solving? This paper…

Tengah, Khairul A. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
As part of promoting and improving pattern discovery skills among school children, a Sudoku puzzle can be used as example of a problem solving task. A simplified version of the puzzle will be used first to explain the aim and reinforce the rules of solving the puzzle. Three strategies--"Strategy of Obvious Missing Number, Strategy of…

Okita, Sandra Y.; Jamalian, Azadeh – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
Developing curriculum and instruction for mathematics education and designing technologically enhanced learning environments are often pursued separately, but may need to be addressed together to effectively link the strengths of technology to performance in mathematics and conceptual understanding. This paper addresses current challenges with…

Tam, Kai Chung – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
The inclusion of modeling and applications into the mathematics curriculum has proven to be a challenging task over the last fifty years. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) has made mathematical modeling both one of its Standards for Mathematical Practice and one of its Conceptual Categories. This article discusses the need for mathematical…

Murray, Diane R. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
A history is given of the Educational Museum of Teachers College, which began in 1886, and David Eugene Smith's extensive collection of mathematical tools used in the Museum's exhibits is discussed. Historic mathematical instruments including, the astrolabe, abacus and counting rods, and the slide rule are examined. The author uses digitized…

Gould, Heather; Reimer, Catherine – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
In the late Fall of 2012, the Museum of Mathematics ("MoMath") will open in New York City and will be the only museum dedicated solely to mathematics in the United States. The content and design of most of the exhibits are not yet available to the public but some information about how the Museum will use technology has been released. The…

Kreith, Kurt – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
This paper is a descriptive and preliminary report on recent efforts to address two questions: 1) Can school mathematics be used to enhance our students' ability to understand their changing world? and 2) What role might computer technology play in this regard? After recounting some of the mathematical tools that led to a better understanding of…

Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
Last year the United States unveiled the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English and Mathematics for grades K-12. In particular, the authors included two possible sequences of 8-12 mathematics courses that would fulfill the standards. Most notably, the courses titled "3a" and "3b" in these two sequences have become…
