A Look at the Eight Mathematical Practice Standards

Eight standards of mathematics include making sense of problems and persevering in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, constructing viable arguments and critiquing, modeling with math, using appropriate tools, attending to precision, looking for structure, expressing regularity. Below you will find ways to incorporate these standards into your everyday teaching methods.

    Pay special attention to figure 2 in this resource, which interconnects the different core standards into a higher order structure of mathematical practices. Once you are able to understand and grasp the connection between the different standards, it will be much simpler to incorporate them into your curriculum. This breakdown can help teachers to develop a better understanding of the standards, and ease an otherwise overwhelming task!
  • Dina Capobianco says:
    A general overview of standards, this resource will provide you with techniques and methods to incorporate into your classroom in order to effectively include the standards into your classroom, allowing students to develop a mathematical mindset and relate math to the world around them.

    This teacher checklist will help teachers to ensure that their lessons include all of the common core principles of mathematics in a thorough and helpful manner. Ensuring that your lessons include these factors will help students to develop a better understanding of the material, and be ready for any challenges that come their way. Stay organized and on top of the standards with this useful sheet.
  • Dina Capobianco says:
    Good explanations of each standard and examples for incorporation will help teachers to decipher which tools and strategies to utilize in their own classrooms. Use these standards as the foundation for mathematical learning, and provide students with ways to apply mathematics to their everyday lives to create a richer learning environment, and engage students on a higher level.

One of my New Years resolutions is to start charting which math practices I use in a given lesson. To keep myself honest, I do not chart any practice that I have to rationalize whether I used it in that lesson. So far, my top two have been: Use appropriate tools strategically and Model with mathematics. I'm curious to see which practices are "trending".
