Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Sidewalk Patterns

Seeing Structure and Generalizing, K-5, 6-8, and 9-12

This set of three complementary modules uses student work samples from patterning tasks (Patterns with Walls K-5, Odd Number Patterns 6-8, and Sidewalk Patterns 9-12) as a stimulus for teacher conversations focused on mathematical structure. These modules are designed to help teachers learn to analyze student work without focusing solely on correct/incorrect solutions and provide a context for teachers to learn to recognize mathematical structures being used by students in their own classrooms.
