Lamm, Millard W.; Pugalee, David K. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Proportional reasoning is perhaps one of the most important types of mathematical thinking for elementary school students to develop. It includes aspects of rational numbers, spans the entire mathematics curriculum, and is a significant foundation for mathematical proficiency. Understanding students' use of proportional reasoning is a basis on…

Kinman, Robin Lynn – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
When the author recently turned her attention to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) "Principles and Standards," she was startled to see communication as key. She adjusted her teaching to meet the NCTM Communication Standard and promote communication in her classroom by providing a safe environment, developing discourse and…

Marshall, Anne Marie; Superfine, Alison Castro; Canty, Reality S. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Ms. Beyer's first graders have been working for several weeks on solving problems that encourage the use of such multiple representations as ten frames and number lines. The class is using Math Trailblazers, a National Science Foundation-supported elementary school math curriculum developed to reflect recent reform efforts in mathematics…

Bostic, Jonathan; Jacobbe, Tim – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Fourteen fifth-grade students gather at the front of the classroom as their summer school instructor introduces Jonathan Bostic as the mathematics teacher for the week. Before examining any math problems, Bostic sits at eye level with the students and informs them that they will solve problems over the next four days by working individually as…

Fillingim, Jennifer G.; Barlow, Angela T. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Mathematics educators promote student engagement in the Process Standards and create problem-solving tasks and facilitate discussions to help their students develop strengths in explaining their methods, using and interpreting multiple representations, and making connections between topics. They are excited and encouraged when they see students…

Bray, Wendy S.; Abreu-Sanchez, Laura – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
One mathematical focus for third graders is to develop deep understanding of fractions and fraction equivalence, including comparing fractions through use of models and reasoning strategies. Before reading further, consider how you might solve the following problem: Which fraction is greater, 14/24 or 17/36? The initial impulse of many adults is…

Barlow, Angela T. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
"The World Is Flat" (Friedman 2005) describes the globalization that advances in technology have imposed on the world economy in recent decades. For the U.S. to maintain its stature in the world, future citizens must be prepared to problem solve and apply their skills to new situations. These future citizens are sitting in elementary school…

Schwartz, James E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
The "flat" world described by Friedman (2006) is one of global supply chains and economic networks, outsourcing, international personal entrepreneurial opportunities, and nearly unlimited, universal information availability. American children will inherit a world in which their competition and opportunities are international. In light of these…

Fung, Maria G.; Latulippe, Christine L. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Elementary school teachers are responsible for constructing the foundation of number sense in youngsters, and so it is recommended that teacher-training programs include an emphasis on number sense to ensure the development of dynamic, productive computation and estimation skills in students. To better prepare preservice elementary school teachers…

Wohlhuter, Kay A.; Breyfogle, M. Lynn; McDuffie, Amy Roth – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Developing deep knowledge and understanding of mathematics is a lifelong process, and building the foundation for teachers' development must begin in preservice preparation and continue throughout one's professional life. While teaching mathematics content courses and methods courses, the authors have found that preservice elementary school…

Darley, Joy W.; Leapard, Barbara B. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
Algebraic thinking is a top priority in mathematics classrooms today. Because elementary school teachers lay the groundwork to develop students' capacity to think algebraically, it is crucial for teachers to have a conceptual understanding of the connections between arithmetic and algebra and be confident in communicating these connections. Many…

Cady, Jo Ann; Hodges, Thomas E.; Brown, Clara Lee – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
English Language Learners (ELLs) have an increasing presence in the nations' classrooms. From 1991 to 2004 the number of ELLs nearly doubled in grades K-12. Furthermore, new forms of accountability have school personnel concerned with the progress--or lack of progress--of the ELLs. "Principles and Standards" also reflects this concern: The Equity…

Martin, W. Gary; Kasmer, Lisa – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
In late 2009, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics released "Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making" (NCTM 2009). This new NCTM policy publication is designed to offer guidance for high school mathematics teachers in providing focus and coherence that parallels what "Curriculum Focal Points for Prekindergarten…

Steckroth, Jeffrey J. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
For nearly three decades, during which the author taught everything from basic algebra to advanced placement calculus, the author thought of himself as a secondary school mathematics teacher. The notion of teaching elementary school math never appealed to him because of its simplicity. The author stresses that anyone could teach children to count,…

Sellers, Patricia A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2010
The fourth graders were ready to learn long division; however, their teachers were hesitant to begin the unit--just as they are every year. In a grade-level meeting with the school's math consultant, the teachers voiced their typical concerns. The math consultant was a university mathematics education professor spending a semester of sabbatical…
