Examining the Intersection of the Standards for Math Content and Standards for Math Practices
Room: Red Level, Suite 16
This session will focus on important mathematical content and help to clarify and recognize the Standards for Mathematical Practice in students’ written work. We will engage with materials and model ways in which stronger classroom connections between content and practice can be made. Two such processes will be shared:
- Unpacking the Rigor: We will examine a series of related tasks involving division of fractions and then discuss the Standards for Mathematical Practice(s) that we would expect to see when students complete each of the tasks.
- Examining Student Work: We will examine a set of student work samples from one of these tasks and identify evidence of the Standards for Mathematical Practice within the written work.
