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.
When Students Use Technology Tools, What Are You Noticing?
Lara K. Dick, Allison W. McCulloch, and Jennifer N. Lovett
A framework to guide teacher noticing when students are working in technology-mediated learning environments.
Using Scratch Programming to Explore Coordinates
Erell Germia and Nicole Panorkou
We present a Scratch task we designed and implemented for teaching and learning coordinates in a dynamic and engaging way. We use the 5Es framework to describe the students' interactions with the task and offer suggestions of how other teachers may adopt it to successfully implement Scratch tasks.
Funky Protractors for Exploring Angle Measure
Hamilton L. Hardison and Hwa Young Lee
In this article, we discuss funky protractor tasks, which we designed to provide opportunities for students to reason about protractors and angle measure. We address how we have implemented these tasks, as well as how students have engaged with them.
Technology Helps Students Transcend Part-Whole Concepts
Anderson Norton, Jesse L. M. Wilkins, Michael A. Evans, Kirby Deater-Deckard, Osman Balci, and Mido Chang
Explore a new app that allows students to develop a more sophisticated understanding of fractions.
Dropping In on the Math of Plinko
Nirmala Naresh and Bridget Royce
Students design game boards and gather experimental data to better understand the hidden mathematics in a common television game show.
Virtual Place Value
Justin T. Burris
Compare how third graders think mathematically when using virtual versus concrete base-ten blocks to learn place-value concepts.
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.
