Slide9Standards for

Mathematical Practice

Slide10Essential Question

How do the Standards for Mathematical Practice positively enhance my students’ mathematical experiences ultimately increasing their mathematical proficiency?

Slide11Objectives

Study and analyze the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice;

Describe desired student behaviors which model the Standards for Mathematical Practice;

Identify desired teacher behaviors to help support student learning via the Standards for Mathematical Practice;

Construct a plan to incorporate the Standards for Mathematical Practice more effectively in their classrooms.

Slide12Standards for Mathematical Practice

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

Construct

viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

Model with mathematics.

Use appropriate tools strategically.

Attend to precision

.

Look for and make use of

structure

.

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Slide13Standards for Mathematical Practice

Each person is assigned to review one Standard for Mathematical Practice

Underline the verbs in that Standard for Mathematical Practice

What do you notice about the kinds of verbs contained the Standards for Mathematical Practice?

Slide14Standards for Mathematical Practice

Using your capture sheet, quietly reflect and write down the desired student and teacher behaviors that exemplify that Standard for Mathematical Practice.

Find another person who has the same Standard for Mathematical Practice as you do. Compare notes and capture new/additional information on your capture sheet.

Slide18Standards for Mathematical Practice

Your pair will join another pair to form a quad. (1&6, 2&3, 4&5, 7&8)

Share information and discuss

Chart your observations on chart paper

Conduct a Gallery Walk

We will regroup to debrief the learning.

Focus on the desired student behaviors and desired teacher behaviors for each Standard for Mathematical Practice.

Slide19Action Planning

How will

you address the Standards for Mathematical Practice at your school/in your classroom?

Which standards will be easier to implement than others?

Which standards will be more difficult to implement and why? How will you address those concerns?

How will you build teacher capacity and share this information at your school with colleagues?
