Sometimes, as in the next quote from Abby, teachers notice that the children's
confidence allows them to try out new mathematical terrain. Abby talks about an
activity that she does with her students daily. It is an activity that comes from the
Investigations curriculum materials (TERC, 1998). Each day the children spend a
few minutes writing equations for the number of the day. The first day the number
is 1; each successive day the children work on the next whole number. In Abby's
class ...

To conclude, given how large a part calculation work occupies in the elementary
mathematics curriculum of different countries, and also the powerful aspect of
mathematical sense-making that proving can bring to this work, one may talk
about a transformative ... The definition of proof that I discussed in Chapter 2
breaks a mathematical argument down into three components: the set of
accepted statements, the modes of argumentation, and the modes of argument

More abstractly, how does the source of Josh's error connect to additive
procedures, the distributive property, multiplication algorithms, multiplication of
binomials, and so on? ... The key to turning even poorly prepared prospective
elementary teachers into mathematical thinkers is to work from what they do
know — the mathematical ideas they hold, the skills they possess, and the
contexts in which these are understood — so they can move from where they are
to where they need to go.

A backlash led to a revision of the math standards whereby content was clarified
by grade level and teachers were given examples of problems, student work, and
illustrative classroom dialogues.5 In higher education, the supremacy of calculus
in the freshman and sophomore mathematics curriculum is being challenged in
part ... Reason and argument—not the teacher or the textbook—as the basis for
an idea's legitimacy is something new in the elementary mathematics classroom.

Initially, we limited the discussion to segments and angles, but we can extend the
idea of congruence to other two- and three-dimensional shapes. Of these,
congruent ... In the elementary classroom, children come to an intuitive
understanding of congruence and similarity by manipulating physical shapes. ...
Once students have a solid understanding of congruence and similarity, they use
the ideas to identify geometric properties, develop mathematical arguments, and
solve problems.

elements of classroom life that researchers seek to understand. But when does it

ideas and practices: the importance of the unit in fractions or what constitutes a
mathematical argument, for instance. ... Stodolsky, in her 1988 book The Subject
Matters, investigated patterns of instruction in upper elementary classrooms and
uncovered sharp differences in those patterns as a function of the subject matter.
