Meet our June Authors!

May 21, 2020

The June issue of NCTM’s MTLT Front and Center article, “Purposeful Questioning with High Cognitive–Demand Tasks,” by Allyson Hallman-Thrasher and Denise A. Spangler offers two planning tools and examples from preservice teachers that show how to support students in articulating and justifying their ideas. Nicole M. Wessman-Enzinger and Kristina Hofer describe the ways children redefined units with fractions for various tasks, including area and discrete modes in “Opportunities for Redefining Unconventional Units.” Inspired by the Batman Equation of 2011, Jerome White presents a challenging and engaging process for graphing complicated designs from just a single parametric equation pair in “Batman Reimagined.”
