ab: Summary: Teachers across all grade levels agree that problem solving and
reasoning are areas of weakness in students. Assessments among U.S.
students indicate that these weaknesses persist in spite of repeated
calls that date back more than thirty years for increased problem
solving, reasoning, and sense making in our schools. The NCTM is
leading the charge for an increased emphasis in these three areas.
Furthermore, NCTM describes eight teaching practices to help facilitate
problem solving, reasoning, and sense making. In this article, the
authors focus on three of those practices: implement tasks that promote
reasoning and problem solving, support productive struggle in learning
mathematics, and facilitate meaningful mathematical discourse. (ERIC)
