Mathematical Practices.jpg

Participants will be able to:
  • Describe the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice (SsMP).
  • Identify when you are or a colleague is using a [[#|math practice]] when problem solving.
  • Identify how to use talk moves as a teaching tool for implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
  • Discuss how a number talk supports students' mathematical thinking.


Number Talk of the Day

Activity #1:



Number Talk Video Guide
Today, we will watch two examples of number talks. Use the recording sheet to take notes during the video.


Beginning the Day with a Math Problem-Do and Discuss Math

Activity #2:


Mathematical Practices

Activity #3


What are the mathematical practices? What do they mean for our teaching?

SsMP #2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively.


Video: Fifth graders reason abstractly and quantitatively.




SsMP #5: Use appropriate tools strategically.


Two third graders share their version of the handshake problems using tools to model.

Video: Fifth and sixth graders use appropriate tools strategically.

Let's reflect:
What do the MPs look, sound like in the classroom?
