An Up-Close Look at Student-Centered Math Teaching 
From Nellie Mae Education Foundation

Advocates of student-centered instruction argue that good teachers have the ability to transform mathematics classrooms into lively, engaging learning environments in which students take charge of their own learning and make meaningful connections to the world around them

Developing Effective Fractions Instruction for Kindergarten Through 8th Grade 
From What Works Clearinghouse

This practice guide presents five recommendations intended to help educators improve students’ understanding of fractions. Recommendations include strategies to develop young children’s understanding of early fraction concepts and ideas for helping older children understand the meaning of fractions and the computations involved. The guide also highlights ways to build on students’ existing strategies to solve problems involving ratios, rates, and proportions.

Early Math Idea Library 
From Erikson Institute Early Math Collaborative

This site provides early math ideas, searchable by content type, grade level, foundational math concept, common core alignment, or series.

Gender, culture, and mathematics performance 
From Hyde and Mertz

Using contemporary data from the U.S. and other nations, the authors address 3 questions: Do gender differences in mathematics performance exist in the general population? Do gender differences exist among the mathematically talented? Do females exist who possess profound mathematical talent?

Implications of Cognitive Science Research for Mathematics Education 
From Robert S. Siegler

This work describes how children typically learn particular skills and concepts, the stumbling blocks that many of them encounter, and instructional practices that can produce greater learning. This chapter deliberately steers clear of statements about math learning in general, instead focusing on findings concerning how children learn certain key ideas and procedures.

Improving Math Learning with Technology 
From Digital Promise

Jeremy Roschelle and Kara Carpenter discuss how technology based on learning science research can support students in learning mathematical concepts. They share several ways technology can support math learning, including the value of multiple representations and personalized feedback to diagnose and remedy mistakes in real time.
