Learning to Think and Thinking to Learn
How do teachers create a classroom environment
where thinking is primary—where thinking
matters just as much as reciting facts, where facts
are learned through thinking, and where they
are used as the basis for further thinking?
research, reflection, practice: What Effective Math Teachers Have in Common
Reflection, and Practice aims to bridge the gap between research and practice
by describing current research and then demonstrating its importance and
applicability to practicing classroom teachers. Summaries of research with
references to full reports, relevant student work or examples of student
dialog, and ideas for action research.
Supporting Teacher Learning: Using Teacher-Produced Videotapes of Student Interviews as Discussion Catalysts
Supporting Teacher Learning serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas and a source of activities and pedagogical strategies for teacher educators in their day-to-day work with prospective and practicing teachers. Supporting Teacher Learning is a regular department of Teaching Children Mathematics.
Illuminations Applet for Teachers: Dynamic Paper
Need a pentagonal pyramid that's six inches tall? Or a number
line that goes from ‑18 to 32 by 5's? Or a set of pattern blocks
where all shapes have one-inch sides? You can create all those things and more
with the Dynamic Paper tool. Place the images you want, then export it as a PDF
activity sheet for your students or as a JPEG image for use in other
applications or on the web.
The Teaching Principle
Effective mathematics teaching requires understanding what students know and need to learn and then challenging and supporting them to learn it well.
