Product Description

By Randall Groth

This PDF file presents a chapter of Mathematics Curriculum: Issues, Trends, and Future Directions (72nd Yearbook) in a downloadable file that preserves the design and layout of the book while allowing users to search and print selected pages.

Chapter 11: Three Perspectives on the Central Objects of Study for Grades Pre-K−8 Statistics. Randall E. Groth (Salisbury University) examines three contemporary approaches to framing pre-K−8 statistics curricula. He discusses mathematical procedures, mathematical concepts, and the process of statistical investigation as three common central objects of study. The chapter suggests tasks’ required levels of cognitive demand and fidelity to the discipline of statistics as criteria for evaluating statistics curricula. This chapter also portrays the process of statistical investigation as an essential curricular component.

Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"

Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.
Developing Essential Understanding of Multiplication and Division for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Move beyond the mathematics you expect your students to learn.

"Unpacking" the ideas related to multiplication and division is a critical step in developing a deeper understanding. To those without specialized training, may of these ideas might appear to be easy to teach. But those who teach in grades 3-5 are aware of their subtleties and complexities.

A Mathematical High Point - Poster

TAIPEI 101 has 101 floors above ground and five floors below. It was the first building in the world to be taller than half a kilometer and, from 2004 to 2010, it was the tallest building in the world. Taipei 101 set several records, including having the world’s fastest elevator. Using the building statistics given on the poster, challenge your students to calculate how far they can see from the top; how long it would take for the elevator to go from the ground floor to the 89th floor; or find the angle of depression from a particular spot on the roof.

THE GOLDEN RATIO is also referred to as the golden section, the golden mean, the golden proportion, the extreme and mean ratio, and the divine proportion. It has been used to ensure beauty and balance in art, architecture, music and design for centuries.
Here, the ubiquitous Fibonacci sequence shows up where it is least expected: in the logo of a Chicago hotel. Your students can discover how to construct and measure a golden rectangle, determine where the golden ratio appears in the pentagon formed by a 5-pointed starfish, and apply graphs of polar equations. (Solutions provided.)
Time for Math Poster

24-HOUR CIRCULAR CLOCKS are divided into 24 hours and display the time since midnight, which is when the day begins. What would our lives be like if there were fewer or more than 24 hours in a day? Students will enjoy playing with this and other ideas generated by analog clocks. (Solutions provided.)

STARRY NIGHT At first glance, James Yamada’s Our Starry Night, is a black, 12-foot-tall sculpture with 1900 unlit colored LED lights on its two flat surfaces. As one passes through the sculpture’s rectangular passageway, however, patterns of light appear triggered by a metal detector hidden inside the structure’s casing.
Have your students seeing stars as they explore combinatorics, ellipses, matrices, and parametric equations stemming from this investigation of a publicly displayed sculpture featuring geometric star shapes. (Solutions provided.)
