Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving, Grades 68 
 Connect the Process of Problem Solving with the Content of the Common Core Mathematics educators have long worked to help students to develop problemsolving skills. More recently, they have sought to provide students with the knowledge in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This volume is the third in a series from NCTM that equips classroom teachers with targeted, highly effective problems for achieving both goals at once. For every mathematics educator, the books in this series will illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards.

“Developing and Empowering Teacher Leaders” (focus 10/13 TCM) 
 October 2013 Focus Issue: Developing and Empowering Teacher Leaders
Are you a teacher leader? Whether you describe yourself as a math coach, math specialist, mentor, or the classroom teacher to whom everyone turns for support—you are a teacher leader. A mathematics teacher leader wears many hats: mentor, data analyst, instructional collaborator, content and process facilitator, researcher, resource provider, observer, teacher, learner, and student. The Editorial Panel of Teaching Children Mathematics is interested in manuscripts that examine ways to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics through empowering teacher leaders.

"Rational Number Sense" (focus 2/14 MTMS) 
 February 2014 Focus Issue: Rational Number Sense
Fractions and other rational numbers are challenging topics to teach as well as learn. What does it take for students to make sense of rational numbers in their myriad forms, such as fractions, ratios, rates, percentages, and decimals? For instance, understanding fractions requires partwhole thinking, including partitioning, iterating (the process of making copies of a unit fraction to make a whole), and unitizing (identifying the unit and the whole). Making sense of ratios also requires partpart thinking and proportional reasoning involving multiplicative rather than additive comparisons between two quantities. As teachers, we want to focus on how to foster these kinds of complex and sophisticated ways of thinking among our students. The Editorial Panel of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School wants to know your thoughts on what can be done to improve students’ rational number sense.
