The TCM Editorial Panel is particularly
interested in submissions from classroom teachers. Teacher Educators and Researchers are
encouraged to seek out classroom practitioners as co-authors. Examples of
potential topics are included in the following manuscript calls, however we
would also be interested in other topics that address various aspects of
teaching children mathematics. Feature articles are about 2500 words.
- 2015 Focus Issue: Between the Wholes: Promoting Fraction and Decimal Understanding
The knowledge of fractions and decimals that children develop in the elementary grades provides an essential foundation for the study of algebra and more advanced mathematics, but most teachers and students consider the topic challenging. Share your approaches to facilitating children’s understanding of fractions and decimals. What classroom activities and ideas do you use to help children make sense of fractions and decimals as numbers, benchmarks, measures, quotients, or as operators? The TCM Editorial Panel invites you to share your ideas on developing K–grade 6 students’ number sense for fractions and decimals. We are especially interested in manuscripts that describe ideas that have been informed by research and implementation in classrooms.
The TCM Editorial Panel is interested in the next steps that are being taken in your school communities to address the expectations outlined in the CCSSM. In addition, we want to learn more about how classroom teachers are integrating the CCSSM into their classroom practice.
- Early Childhood - Where math learning begins
Young children learn best when they are interested and engaged. Tell us how you excite, support and celebrate young mathematicians.
How do you use technology to develop students’ understanding, stimulate their interest, and increase their proficiency in mathematics? Share your ideas about the effective use of technology in grades pre-K–6 mathematics classrooms.
