Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Introduction to CCSS Standards for Mathematical Practice, K-12

Participants explore both the language of the Practice Standards and sample tasks from the national assessment projects as contexts though which they can consider implications that the Practices will have on their classrooms and students. The antecedents of the Standards for Mathematical Practice are described and next steps are explored.
