11 11 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices A Challenging Opportunity! “These Standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step. It is time for states to work together to build on lessons learned from two decades of standards based reforms. It is time to recognize that standards are not just promises to our children, but promises we intend to keep.” — CCSS (2010, p.5)

21 21 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices Standards for Mathematical Practice 1.Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2.Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3.Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4.Model with mathematics. 5.Use appropriate tools strategically. 6.Attend to precision. 7.Look for and make use of structure. 8.Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

22 22 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices 22 The Standards for Mathematical Practice Take a moment to examine the first three words of each of the eight mathematical practices… what do you notice? Mathematically proficient students…

23 23 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices 23 The Standards for Mathematical Practice What are the verbs that illustrate the student actions for your assigned mathematical practice? Circle, highlight or underline them for your assigned practice… Discuss with a partner: How does this practice compare to your current practice?

24 24 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices 24 The Standards for Mathematical Practice #1: Explain and make conjectures… #2: Make sense of… #3: Understand and use… #4: Apply and interpret… #5: Consider and detect… #6: Communicate precisely to others… #7: Discern and recognize… #8: Notice and pay attention to…

25 25 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices 25 The Standards for Mathematical Practice On a scale of 1 (low) to 6 (high), to what extent are you or your school/district promoting all students’ proficiency in the practice you discussed? What evidence might you site for your rating?

26 26 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices 26 Standards for Mathematical Practice On one hand, the Standards for Mathematical Practice describe mathematical content students need to learn. SP1. Make sense of problems “… students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends.”

27 27 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices 27 On the other hand, they describe the nature of the learning experiences, thinking processes, habits of mind, and dispositions that students need to develop a deep, flexible, and enduring understanding of mathematics; in this sense they are also a means to an end. SP1. Make sense of problems “….they [students] analyze givens, constraints, relationships and goals. ….they monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. …. and they continually ask themselves “Does this make sense?” Standards for Mathematical Practice

28 28 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices Standards for Mathematical Practice What implications might the Standards for Mathematical Practice have on your classroom? 1. Individually review the Standards for Mathematical Practice. 2.Choose a partner at your table and discuss a new insight you had into the Standards for Mathematical Practice. 3.Then discuss the following question.

29 29 National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice: Getting Started with the Practices Implementing CCSS Challenge: –CCSS assessments not available for several years ( ) although the assessment specifications and sample items will be available sooner –Recognizing that CCSS are a departure from “business as usual” Where not to start-- –Aligning CCSS Standards grade-by-grade with existing mathematics standards 29
