When students create their own exponent mazes, their creativity and problem-solving abilities flourish.
The Exponent Maze: An Opening for Creativity
Kira Rivera and David Peabody
Visualizing Mathematics Through Knitting
The author uses mathematical concepts to inform her knitting. Her knitting also helps her to experience mathematical concepts in new ways.
Three Ways to Enhance Tasks for Multilingual Learners
Sarah A. Roberts, Zandra de Araujo, Craig Willey, and William Zahner
Enacting these considerations supports integrated thinking about how to attend to both mathematics content and language development.
Weaving the Rainbow (Odd I)
This piece is a rumination on flow, pattern, and edges/transitions, focusing on polynomials of odd degree and overlaying/underlaying the flow of the graphical structure with a rainbow to suggest the central importance of queer visibility in mathematics.
Student Engagement with the “Into Math Graph" Tool
Amanda K. Riske, Catherine E. Cullicott, Amanda Mohammad Mirzaei, Amanda Jansen, and James Middleton
We introduce the Into Math Graph tool, which students use to graph how “into" mathematics they are over time. Using this tool can help teachers foster conversations with students and design experiences that focus on engagement from the student’s perspective.
“Counting” on Quantitative Reasoning for Algebra
Lori Burch, Erik S. Tillema, and Andrew M. Gatza
Use this approach to developing algebraic identities as a generalization of combinatorial and quantitative reasoning. Secondary school students reason about important ideas in the instructional sequence, and teachers consider newfound implications for and extensions of this generalization in secondary algebra curricula.
Reasoning and Sense Making in High School Mathematics with Two Ways
S. Megan Che, Juliana Utley,, and Stacy Reeder
This article illustrates ways to extend Two Ways into high school mathematics content and advantages of doing so.
GPS: Popsicle Place Value and Polynomials
Kelly Hagan and Cheng-Yao Lin
Growing Problem Solvers provides four original, related, classroom-ready mathematical tasks, one for each grade band. Together, these tasks illustrate the trajectory of learners’ growth as problem solvers across their years of school mathematics.
