Read the descriptions for the 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice (SsMP). Highlight all of the verbs. Chart out the verbs for your assigned mathematical practice.

Discussion Questions:
1. What do you notice about the verbs? What do they have in common? Where have you seen these before?
2. What are the implications of the practices for our teaching?

Sticker Collection Purpose: Engage in a common math doing experience with colleagues and to create a touchstone experience that can be minded for examples of the 8 mathematical practices.
