Sequences are an important topic—not only in mathematics but also in the mathematics curriculum. Exploring sequences related to medial triangles offers learners opportunities to solve problems involving sequences within geometric contexts. Sequences related to medial triangles are also a rich source of beautiful and interesting geometric patterns that can be discovered with the use of dynamic geometry software (DGS) such as GeoGebra or Web Sketchpad. In addition, exploring sequences with DGS allows learners to formulate and test conjectures, an important mathematical process. In this article, I describe how my students used GeoGebra and geometric reasoning to visualize, discover, formulate,

This article presents an example of discovering an idea through creative play. After some trial and error, I drew a wonderful image, which I later learned was a two-dimensional view of a four-dimensional shape called tesseract.

As mathematics teachers, we establish several norms, expectations, rules, and daily routines that result in culture building. Hence, in my classes, I decided to center the norms and culture building around five Rs: (1) rigor, (2) relevance, (3) responsiveness, (4) relationship, and (5) responsibility. Using these five Rs provided a norm to engage in our mathematical activities and reflections and established the expectation that everyone would contribute to mathematics teaching and learning (Boyce et al. 2021). Thus, this reflection describes how articles published this year (2021) in Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK–12 (MTLT

We introduce the Into Math Graph tool, which students use to graph how “into" mathematics they are over time. Using this tool can help teachers foster conversations with students and design experiences that focus on engagement from the student’s perspective.

Success in STEM fields depends largely on robust spatial skills, in particular on the ability to perform a mental rotation. Given that this ability can be nurtured, this article includes examples of diverse relevant tasks appropriate for grades 6–8 students.
