This tool provides teachers with a framework for helping students to develop the Mathematical Practices in the classroom and monitoring their progress.
Professional development leaders with a group of mathematics teachers.
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important ‘processes and proficiencies’ with long-recognized importance in mathematics education (Common Core State Standards Initiative). The Practices have been included in most revised State Standards.
This session provides a framework for assessing students’ proficiency in planning, presenting, analyzing and reflecting as they learn mathematics. By considering examples of characteristics that exemplify a student’s proficiency in any given practice, it is hoped that teachers will be stimulated to actively monitor, as well as encourage their students to self assess their proficiency at the Mathematical Practices in an endeavor to improve.
