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.
Student Engagement with the “Into Math Graph" Tool
Amanda K. Riske, Catherine E. Cullicott, Amanda Mohammad Mirzaei, Amanda Jansen, and James Middleton
What's the Big Deal about Vocabulary?
Pamela J. Dunston and Andrew M. Tyminski
Techniques for teaching mathematics terminology allow adolescents to expand their abstract reasoning ability and move beyond operations into problem solving.
Conceptualizing Mathematics Using Narratives and Art
Terri L. Kurz and Barbara Bartholomew
To support mathematical investigations, use this framework to guide students in constructing art-based and technology-based literature.
Beyond the Write Answer: Mathematical Connections
Leigh Haltiwanger and Amber M. Simpson
Allowing students to write in mathematics class can promote critical thinking, illustrate an awareness of mathematical connections, and result in clear communication as they share ideas comfortably with peers.
Functions and the Volume of Vases
Ann C. McCoy, Rita H. Barger, Joann Barnett, and Emily Combs
While filling vases with water and observing volume and height relationships, students learn the fundamentals of functions.
Informing Practice: Examples as Tools for Constructing Justifications
research matters for teachers
Kristen N. Bieda and Jerilynn Lepak
Research explores how to help students build from, instead of building with, examples when justifying mathematical ideas.
