Engaging Minds in Science and Math Classrooms - Eric Brunsell; Michelle A. Fleming; Michael F. Opitz (Editor); Michael P. Ford (Editor)
Call Number: Online eBook
ISBN: 9781416618133
Publication Date: 2014-01-01
"We decide, every day, whether we are going to turn students on or off to science and mathematics in our classrooms." Daily decisions about how to incorporate creativity, choice, and autonomy--integral components of engagement--can build students' self-efficacy, keep them motivated, and strengthen their identities as scientists and mathematicians. In this book, Eric Brunsell and Michelle A. Fleming show you how to apply the joyful learning framework introduced in Engaging Minds in the Classroom to instruction in science and mathematics. Acknowledging that many students--particularly girls and students of color--do not see themselves as mathematicians and scientists, the authors provide a series of suggested activities that are aligned with standards and high expectations to engage and motivate all learners. Given the current focus on encouraging students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) studies, this book is a welcome addition to every teacher's reference collection. Eric Brunsell is a former high school science teacher and is now associate professor of science education at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Michelle A. Fleming is a former elementary and middle school teacher and is now assistant professor of science and mathematics education at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

Towards Equity in Mathematics Education - Helen Forgasz (Editor); Ferdinand Rivera (Editor)
Call Number: eBook
ISBN: 9783642277016
Publication Date: 2012-03-21
This volume gathers together twenty major chapters that tackle a variety of issues associated with equity in mathematics education along the dimensions of gender, culture, curriculum diversity, and matters of a biological nature. The pursuit of equity in mathematics education is an important concern in the history of the present. Since there is no doubt about the significant role of mathematics in almost every aspect of life, it means that all individuals regardless of sex, in any age range, and in whatever context need to be provided with an opportunity to become mathematically able. The publication of this Springer volume on equity in mathematics education is situated at a time when there is strong and sustained research evidence indicating the persistence of an equity gap in mathematics, which has now enabled the mathematics education community to engage in a discourse of access for all.  The research studies that are reported and discussed in the volume have been drawn from an international group of distinguished scholars whose impressive, forward-looking, and thought-provoking perspectives on relevant issues incite, broaden, and expand complicated conversations on how we might effectively achieve equity in mathematics education at the local, institutional, and systemic levels. Further, the up-to-date research knowledge in the field that is reflected in this volume provides conceptual and practical outlines for mechanisms of change, including models, examples, and usable theories that can inform the development of powerful equitable practices and the mobilization of meaningful equity interventions in different contexts of mathematics education.

Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6 - 12 - Randall E. Groth
Call Number: Charlotte Campus Circulation QA11.2 .G76 2013
ISBN: 9781412995689
Publication Date: 2012-08-10
Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6 - 12 by Randall E. Groth explores how research in mathematics education can inform teaching practice in grades 6-12. The author shows preservice mathematics teachers the value of being a "researcher--constantly experimenting with methods for developing students' mathematical thinking--and connecting this research to practices that enhance students' understanding of the material. Ultimately, pre-service teachers will gain a deeper understanding of the types of mathematical knowledge students bring to school, and how students' thinking may develop in response to different teaching strategies.

The Art of Motivating Students for Mathematics Instruction - Alfred Posamentier; Stephen Krulik
Call Number: Charlotte Campus Circulation QA11.2 .P6383 2012
ISBN: 9780078024474
Publication Date: 2011-03-15
Effective teaching is largely reliant on the teacher’s ability to capture the genuine interest of the students for the material to be taught. This naturally rests on the planning that the teacher exerts in preparation for the lesson. Perhaps the single most important aspect of any lesson is the beginning of the lesson where the teacher must motivate the students for the ensuing lesson. This can be done in many ways and is also largely measure a function of the teacher’s personality and voice. Studies have shown that what a teacher says accounts for 7% of the effectiveness package, the tone of the teacher’s voice and the enthusiasm accounts for 38%, and the “body language” accounts for 55%. Teachers should be entertaining, without ever losing control of the lesson, and yet not be completely scripted to prevent accommodation to the quirks of any class.Yet even the finest style of presentation – an important part of any teaching performance – can only offer a portion of the overall effectiveness. The content of what is said is paramount! This then leads us into the theme of the book, namely, the techniques that can be used to motivate students in the first few minutes of almost any lesson in mathematics. This could be the most difficult part of a lesson to plan. It requires a modicum of creativity and yet it pays back by enabling a successful lesson. It is a very worthwhile investment of time.
