Because many of these eight practices are related and support one another, teacher teams often would state several of these practices as the focus of their professional learning goals. In the following chapters, we highlight several lesson vignettes that showcase how teachers implemented some of these eight Mathematics Teaching Practices outlined in the Principles to Actions during our lesson study. 1 Core Teaching Practices from the Principles to Action, NCTM (2014) Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving.

In the handshake applet below, we see how one can employ technology to enhance the understanding of the solution approaches to the handshake problem. We will now describe an applet that has been custom created that can be employed as a tool to Developing Strategic Competence through Modeling Mathematical Ideas 23 discover the associated pattern. A technology tool is also helpful to generalize a pattern observed for larger numbers. Let us consider seven members shaking hands with each other. The technology tool allows students to enter the number seven for the “number of people” and as they proceed to solve for the handshakes, the tool can help prompt the steps in the process.

Students need to also develop competencies for self-directed learning and to explore new knowledge areas. We chose this inquiry-based learning task because it was an appropriate task, that is, elementary and middle-grade students can relate to for an early mathematical modeling experience.
