Survey 1: Big Ideas in Math Education
October 05, 2015 08:58 PM PDT
The notion of Procedural and Conceptual Understanding came in as the "big idea" that is most pervasive in the thinking of math educators, with nearly 35% of the vote. Tied for second place were ideas about attending to student thinking and also the kinds of thinking and interacting we want students to engage in, particularly the process standards or Standards for Mathematical Practice.
