  1. Ten Questions About Numbers: A College Writing Assignment

    Elliott, Steve
    This paper examines a writing assignment in a college algebra course. Each student picked a number from a list including the digits 0 through 9, ϕ, googol, ϰ0, and others. Each wrote a paper answering three questions from a list of ten, such as "How old is this number?" and "What are some examples of this number in art?" Students shared their papers through oral presentations in class. The assignment sought to increase interest in mathematics, to provide cultural content within the algebra course, and to have students discover some of the beauty of mathematics. This paper describes some answers the students gave, student feedback...

  2. Advice for New Student Teachers From Beginning Teachers

    Biondi, Kay; Flores, Alfinio
    At the end of the semester, during the last session of the weekly seminar that accompanies the student teaching experience, we asked our student teachers to think about the one piece of advice they would give to beginning student teachers. In the following article, we share our informal findings.

  3. Creating Children’s Books and Learning Mathematics

    Keen, Virginia (Ginny)
    The Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 2000) describes a guide for high-quality mathematics teaching and learning. The mathematical knowledge that early-grade teachers need to possess; while not sophisticated mathematics, must be meaningful, flexible, and secure. Early childhood teachers need to be able to present mathematical ideas in a variety of contexts and to ask questions about the imbedded mathematics. To develop these capabilities and provide evidence of their mathematical knowledge, I had preservice teachers (PSTs) write letters, create children’s books with accompanying “Notes to the Reader” and share their books with first-grade pen pals. This paper lays out the expectations of the instructor for...

  4. Empowering Students Using Technology, Visual Literacy, and Engagement

    Pachnowski, Lynne M.; Chaplin, Rachel
    Power Algebra is a PowerPoint-based Algebra curriculum developed by a teacher from the Akron Public Schools in Akron, Ohio. Akron is a large, urban district (the fourth largest city and district in Ohio) and possesses student characteristics similar to many other urban districts especially in terms of the number of students with learning disabilities and the challenges meeting proficient standardized test scores.

  5. Catenary "Best Fit"

    Wade, Angela
    Catenary curves are often seen in architecture and in suspension bridges. In the following article, the process of “fitting” a curve to the St. Louis arch is presented using dynamic geometry software (DGS) and TI-nspire graphing calculators.

  6. A Pythagorean-Like Theorem

    Phelps, Steve

  7. Writing to Communicate Mathematically in the Elementary School Classroom

    Thompson, Linda Shelley
    In this article, Linda Thompson shares a variety of practical, classroom-ready ideas for incorporating writing meaningfully into mathematics instruction - both as a learning tool for students and as an assessment tool for teachers.
