MTH 156 Week 2 DQ 1 Question 1-A Do children solve problems differently than adults? Explain why and what a teacher may do to help them, by giving a problem from the textbook as an example and explain how you would help your future students with this problem. Question 1-B In the electronic reading from Week 1 by Linda. J. Deal and Michael G. Wismer explain what instructors need to do in order to help “mathematically talented� students get the most from their mathematical experiences in the classroom. After reading this article, pick one of their suggestions and explain how you might implement it in your future classroom.

MTH 156 Week 2 DQ2 Question 2-A Why is patterning important when teaching mathematics? Choose a patterning activity from the textbook or another resource. Explain how you would use this activity. Make sure to include the mathematical goals of the activity and the targeted grade level. Question 2-B On pages 3-5 of the electronic reading by Tracy Muir, there is a list of principles and practices that the author considers essential to effectively teaching numeracy. Look at this list, select one


of these principles, and give an example of how you will apply this principle in your future classroom.

MTH 156 Week 3 The use of Venn Diagrams Week 3 Venn Diagram Paper — AssignmentVenn Diagram PaperWrite a 350- to 700-word paper on how Venn diagrams can help students in math. Include the following in your paper:·Two to three specific examples·At least one referenceFormat your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

MTH 156 Week 4 DQ1 Question 1-A Read the following scenario, and formulate the response you might give the parent; share your response, and explain your reasoning. A new math teacher at your school is questioning your use of manipulatives in the classroom. They think using manipulatives is too simplistic and that the child is not learning the concepts needed to count. What might you say to this teacher to justify your use of manipulatives? Give an example of a mathematical concept that you believe the use of manipulatives will improve student learning. Question 1-B Read the Week 2 Electronic Reading: Berger, J.-L. (2009). The influence of achievement goals on metacognitive processes in math problem solving. Journal of Cognitive Education & Psychology, 8(2), 165. This article concerns research that the authors conducted to discover how the goals teachers set for students influences a student’s ability to perform a mathematical task. Metacognition refers to how students think about their own learning process. What does the research in this article tell you as a future teacher about the kinds of goals that motivate students to work harder? For either question - Remember to use YOUR OWN words in your answer but try to connect your answers to information in the textbook and/or the Electronic Readings.

MTH 156 Week 4 DQ2 Question 2-A Why is it important to study Set Theory? Give at least one specific example of a Set Theory activity that you might use in the classroom and be sure to explain why this activity will help students develop algebraic thinking skills. Question 2-B Read the Week 4 Electronic Reading by Marilyn Burns. Burns, M. (2002). Algebra in the ‘elementary grades? Absolutely! Instructor, 112(3), 24. Pick one of the Algebraic Concepts that Marilyn Burns believes is important in elementary grades, and explain why the concept is important. Then give an example of an activity that you could use to teach the concept. You may use an activity from the book or her article, but you need to explain it in your own words. Question 2-C Read the Week 4 Electronic Reading by Robyn Pierce and Kaye Stacey.


Pierce, R., & Stacey, K. (2007). Developing algebraic insight. MT: Mathematics Teaching, (203), 12-16. Explain what these authors mean when they refer to “Algebraic Insight�. Then give an example of how you might help your future students develop algebraic insight.

MTH 156 Week 6 DQ1 Question 1-A Do you feel that students should be proficient in addition before learning multiplication? Give an example of how you would assess whether your students are proficient in addition. Use at least one specific addition or multiplication example task from Chapter 3 in your textbook, in your answer. Question 1-B In the electronic reading assignment for Week 6 there is an article by Sharon Griffin; in this article she explains some of her beliefs about how students acquire mathematical knowledge. Look at Table 1 on page 100. Explain how your assessment of one of the levels of skills in this Table could help children develop mathematical proficiency.

MTH 156 Week 6 DQ2 Question 2-A Should children be encouraged to use different algorithms for arithmetic computation? If yes, give an example of an addition or multiplication algorithm that children might use. If no, explain why you would not encourage different algorithms with a specific example of an algorithm you would not let children use. Discuss both the positive or negative effects for the students and teachers with your response. Explain your answer with specific examples from the textbook and/or the electronic reading assignments for this week. Question 2-B Look again at the electronic reading assignment for Week 6 by Sharon Griffin. In Table 2 on page 104, she lists Operation Sense as one of the levels of skills students need to progress in their acquisition of mathematical knowledge. What does her concept of Operation Sense mean for children and how does it affect the ability of students to create their own algorithms?
