Mathematical Practices.jpg
Objectives:
Describe the eight mathematical practices and how to support them use in the classroom.




Let's start with a problem:


SMP #1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
SMP #6 Attend to precision.


As you watch the video, use these questions to think about math practices in action:


SMP #4 Model with mathematics.
SMP #5 Use appropriate tools strategically.
There are 35 people in a room. Everyone is asked to shake hands with everyone in the room once. How many handshakes with there be?


SMP #2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
SMP #3 Critique viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.




SMP #7 Look for and make use of structure.
SMP#8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
