Wilson, P. Holt; Myers, Marrielle; Edgington, Cyndi; Confrey, Jere – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
Whether sharing a collection of toys among friends or a pie for dessert, children as young as kindergarten age are keen on making sure that everyone gets their "fair share." In the classroom, fair-sharing activities call for creating equal-size groups from a collection of objects or creating equal-size parts of a whole and are generally used by…

Barlow, Angela T.; Harmon, Shannon – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) is different from the objectives that many teachers have previously experienced in their state frameworks. Although the mathematical topics of the two may be the same, the mathematical expectations within the Standards require a deeper understanding by teachers and students. In this article, the…

Kurz, Terri L. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
Do manufacturers' claims about water projectile toys measure up? It is one thing to assert that a Super Soaker[R] shoots thirty linear feet, but can it really shoot that far? This lesson gives students an opportunity to test the claims, experience measurement in a meaningful context, and analyze data within that context. Although measurement can…

McCool, Jenni K.; Holland, Carol – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
As teachers work to ensure that their students meet and exceed standards set by state and national governing bodies, the need for teacher support becomes greater and greater. Teachers, who play the most important role in a student's education, are faced with a classroom full of children who understand concepts on many different levels. To gain…

Polly, Drew; Orrill, Chandra – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
Cognitively demanding tasks are at the heart of the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSI 2010). As with all the grades, teachers of grades 5 and 6 are challenged to use tasks that simultaneously address the grade-level Standards as well as the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP). Cognitively demanding tasks…

Siegel, Aryn A.; Ortiz, Enrique – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
The recent push for more problem solving in elementary school mathematics classrooms intimidates many teachers. Anyone can look at the arguments--that problem solving deepens knowledge, provides real-world context, allows for multiple entry points, and so on--and see their logic and potential (Lester and Charles 2003). But teachers tend to think…

Russell, Susan Jo – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
The Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) are, at the same time, promising and problematic. Some educators hope that the adoption and implementation of this document can result in a deeper, more coherent curriculum for all students. Others are concerned that it will push schools and teachers to be even more focused than they have been…

Wilson, Johnnie – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
According to the author, much of their math teaching is through pictures and words. They write number sentences, they draw geometric figures, and they talk about math. The representations they use--numbers, shapes, operators, and mathematics vocabulary--make it possible for them to learn and communicate mathematical ideas. These representations…

Schulman, Steven M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
The author's teaching goal is always to make certain that his students, children and adults alike, have some reason for joining him on his mathematical journeys. The lesson he describes in this article provides him with the unusual opportunity to call attention to strategies that have had a long history and remarkable results. With careful…

Larson, Matthew R. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
As elementary educators across the country begin to interpret the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) and put them into practice, this article takes a look at this latest set of mathematics standards from a historical viewpoint. The author discusses how educators might use a historical perspective to make the outcome of…

Phelps, Katherine A. G. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
During the winter of 2011, the author faced an instructional dilemma: Should she teach the concept of adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators using a "quick trick" for the sake of staying on schedule, or should she try something different in hopes that her students would gain understanding through their own methods? The latter…

Thomas, Jonathan N.; Tabor, Pamela D. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
Moving beyond physical interactions with materials is a significant mathematical step for students that is often difficult to take. Persistent tally-mark use, for example, among older children is a testament to this challenge. For many students, shifting away from tangible tools begins a precarious journey; teachers should support it with…

Christenson, Bridget; Wager, Anita A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
One of the many challenges teachers face is trying to differentiate instruction so all students have equal opportunities to participate, learn, and engage. To provide guidelines for differentiated instruction in mathematics, staff from the Madison Metropolitan School District in Wisconsin created a pedagogical framework for teaching called…

Bleiler, Sarah K.; Thompson, Denisse R. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
Given the recent release and widespread state adoption of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), teachers across the country now have common goals related to what their students should understand about particular mathematical topics. The authors of CCSSM explain, "Asking a student to understand something means asking a teacher to…

Holbert, Sydney M.; Barlow, Angela T. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2012
With the introduction of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), teachers must now teach math with an eye on simultaneously meeting the Standards for Mathematical Practice (CCSSI 2010). These Standards "describe varieties of expertise that math educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students" (p. 6). The first Standard, that…
