Examining Mathematics Practice Through Classroom Artifacts

Full Description: 

How can teachers more effectively diagnose what students do and don't understand about mathematics? Authors Lynn Goldsmith and Nanette Seago provide an innovative framework to help teachers use classroom artifacts to assess students' mathematical thinking and their understanding of mathematical content. Examining Mathematics Practice Through Classroom Artifacts helps teachers become more analytic about their students' thinking by showing them how to use student artifacts to evaluate what is happening in the classroom. Focusing on elementary through middle grades, chapters investigate what classroom artifacts are, how to interpret them, and ways to use this data to improve mathematics instruction.
