Using Activities from the “Mathematics Teacher” to Support “Principles and Standards”
Edited by Kimberley Girard and Margaret Aukshun
This selection of "Activities" from NCTM's Mathematics Teacher journal, whose topics range from slope and volume to nonperiodic tilings and the methods of voting, was chosen to help teachers as they reach toward the vision of mathematics teaching and learning as described in NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. Notes from the authors include objectives, materials needed, suggestions for using the activities, and sometimes extensions of the activity. Also featured is a grid to help teachers choose the activities that best meet the needs of their students.
