When the most recent mathematical content standards were written, authors recognized the need for changes to instruction in addition to new content standards. Called Practice Standards in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Process Standards in other states, these instructional practices were based on research from National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Research Councilâs report Adding It Up. The NCTM process standards included problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. Similarly, Adding It Up detailed five strands of mathematical proficiency: adaptive reasoning,strategic competence, conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and productive disposition. The NCTM process standards and Adding it Up strands of mathematical proficiency led to the Standards for Mathematical Practice, which provide guidance for learners at all grade levels. The overarching goal of this course is to familiarize teachers with the Standards for Mathematical Practice in a way that is applicable across all states and to help develop students who are mathematically proficient.This course provides an in-depth look at the eight mathematics practice standards that are applicable in all classrooms regardless of the content standards in your state. It allows teachers to explore ways to implement each standard in the classroom to ensure that students are given the opportunity to develop these practices in their own lives.
