Teaching transparently about the process and goals can support students as they make and support mathematical claims.
Design projects to encourage your students’ self-efficacy and motivate mathematics learning by helping them apply their prior knowledge from real-world experiences.
Examining the covariation of triangle dimensions and area offers a geometric context that makes analyzing a piecewise function easier for students.
