Presenter Pam Williams, PhD Standards for Mathematical Practice (Kindergarten-Grade 5) Alabama College and Career Ready Standards for Mathematics K- 5 Standards for Mathematical Practices

Outcomes Participants will build their understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Participants will enhance their skills in identifying the extent to which students exhibit the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Participants will generate ideas for how teachers can integrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice with instruction to support student proficiency.

What do you know about the Alabama College and Career Ready Initiative? How many practice standards are there? What do the standards mean?

The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students (CCSS, 2010)

Practice Standards: HOW the students are learning 1 st Half Content Standards: WHAT the students are learning 2 nd Half

The Standards for Mathematical Practice Mathematically proficient students: Standard 1:Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Standard 2:Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Standard 3:Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Standard 4:Model with mathematics. Standard 5:Use appropriate tools strategically. Standard 6:Attend to precision. Standard 7:Look for and make use of structure. Standard 8:Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Requires: Teacher knowledge of mathematics language and content. Teacher knowledge of how to promote student involvement in mathematical practices. Shifting students focus from answer getting to solving problems. Establishing the classroom environment as a community of learners. Successfully Implementing the Standards …..

Jackie likes to watch birds find worms for their babies. Red birds can carry two worms at a time. Brown birds can carry three worms at a time and blue birds can carry five worms at a time. There are 24 worms on the ground. What might the Standards for Mathematical Practice look like in a mathematical task?

How did you determine which practice standards matched the problem? What were the criteria/evidence for selection? ( verbs, actions, etc)

What might the Standards for Mathematical Practice look like in a task addressing content?

Video Reflection

What instructional decisions did the teacher make that seemed to support the development of Standards for Mathematical Practice for students? What did you hear or see in a mathematics classroom that is working to build the Standards for Mathematical Practice?
