ab: Summary: This article addresses the struggles teachers face when they
attempt to change their teaching style in order to achieve an ideal
mathematics classroom. With the implementation of the Common Core State
Standards, many of the behaviors associated with an ideal mathematics
classroom appear within the Standards for Mathematical Practice, on
which students can be assessed and teachers will be held accountable.
High school teacher Penelope Tolle uses six principles of quality
mathematics instruction based on pre- and post-lesson discussions
between Japanese pre-service teachers and their professors to explain
how to take the focus off the teacher, and put it where it needs to be
‒ on student engagement with the lesson. (ERIC)
