Connecting mathematics across the curriculum by
Peggy House(
Book
)
11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the four cornerstones of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (nctm) "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics" asserts that connecting mathematics to other subjects in the curriculum and to the everyday world is an important goal of school mathematics. This yearbook is designed to help classroom teachers, teacher educators, supervisors, and curriculum developers broaden their views of mathematics and suggests practical strategies for engaging students in exploring the connectedness of mathematics. Following are the section and chapter titles. Part 1: General Issues: (1) "The Case for Connections" (A.F. Coxford); (2) "Connections as ProblemSolving Tools" (T.R. Hodgson); (3) "Connecting School Science and Mathematics" (D.F. Berlin & A.L. White); and (4) "Using Ethnomathematics To Find Multicultural Mathematical Connections" (L. Shirley). Part 2: Connections within Mathematics: (5) "Connecting Number and Geometry" (L. Leake); (6) "Using Functions To Make Mathematical Connections" (R.P. Day); (7) "Making Connections with Transformations in Grades k8" (R.N. Rubenstein & D.R. Thompson); (8) "Transformations: Making Connections in High School Mathematics" (M.L. Crowley); (9) "Using Transformations To Foster Connections" (D.B. Hirschhorn & S.S. Viktora); and (10) "Connecting Mathematics with Its History: a Powerful, Practical Linkage" (L. Reimer & W. Reimer). Part 3: Connections across the Elementary School Curriculum: (11) "Learning Mathematics in Meaningful Contexts: An ActionBased Approach in the Primary Grades" (S.L. Schwartz & F.R. Curcio); (12) "Measurement in a PrimaryGrade Integrated Curriculum" (L. Rhone); (13) "Connecting Literature and Mathematics" (D.J. Whitin); (14) "Connecting Reasoning and Writing in Student 'How to' Manuals" (N.F. Grandgenett, J.W. Hill, & C.V. Lloyd); and (15) "Connecting Mathematics and Physical Education through Spatial Awareness" (D.V. Lambdin & D. Lambdin). Part 4: Connections across the Middle School Curriculum: (16) "Seeing and Thinking Mathematically in the Middle School" (G.M. Kleiman); (17) "Projects in the Middle School Mathematics Curriculum" (S. Krulik & J. Rudnick); (18) "Carpet Laying: An Illustration of Everyday Mathematics" (J.O. Masingila); (19) "Mathematics and Quilting" (K.T. Ernie); and (20) "Randomness: a Connection to Reality" (D.J. Dessart). Part 5: Connections across the High School Curriculum: (21) "Connecting Geometry with the Rest of Mathematics" (A.A. Cuoco, E.P. Goldenberg, & J. Mark); (22) "Forging Links with Projects in Mathematics" (J.W. McConnell); (23) "Baseball Cards, Collecting, and Mathematics" (V.P. Schielack, Jr.); (24) "Experiencing Functional Relationships with a Viewing Tube" (M.R. Wilson & B.E. Shealy); (25) "Breathing Life into Mathematics" (K.M. Johnson & C.L. Litynski); and (26) "Students' Reasoning and Mathematical Connections in the Japanese Classroom" (K. ItoHino). (Mkr)

The Ideas of algebra, K12 : 1988 yearbook by
Arthur F Coxford(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1988 and 1995 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is organized into six parts. Chapters 15, which make up Part 1, first discuss the forces impinging on algebra in the curriculum and suggest possible directions for change. Chapters 68, Part 2, concentrate on concepts and teaching possibilities available prior to the formal introduction of algebra. The notion that algebraic ideas are accessible to younger learners but, again, that care is needed in their development, is reinforced. In chapters 911, Part 3, equations and expressions in algebra are the focus. It is suggested that previous learning affects the learner's view of new ideas, that the solution of linear equations demands a careful developmental sequence, and that factoring and polynomials are important algebraic topics. Part 4, made up of chapters 1214, emphasizes suggestions for teaching and using word problems in algebra. Part 5, chapters 1524, emphasizes the use of technology in the algebra classroom. Suggestions include presenting guidelines for the development of instructional software, using computer programming as a way to introduce mathematical concepts, using computer generated data to teach concepts and processes, and using the calculator as a tool. Part 6, chapters 2534, focuses on helpful, teacher tested, ideas for teaching algebra. (Pk)

Professional development for teachers of mathematics : 1994 yearbook by
Douglas B Aichele(
Book
)
10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This National Council of Teachers of Mathematics yearbook, organized into three parts, provides a collection of articles on the professional development of teachers of mathematics. Based on known research, part 1 examines the issues associated with professional development and addresses the stages of the continuum of professional development from general to mathematicsspecific perspectives. The articles in part 2 address the initial preparation of teachers of mathematics in grades k12. A call for changing preservice programs is followed by descriptions of exemplary mathematics teacher education programs at all levels, k12, including a model for a preservice program to prepare elementary mathematics specialists. Part 3 focuses on professional development for practitioners. These articles describe very creative projects and programs from the educational and business communities. High levels of cooperation and collaboration among those constituencies committed to reforming mathematics education are showcased throughout. (Mkr)
