The Mathematics Practice standards provide expertise that educators should seek to develop in their learners at all grade levels. 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 Council's 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 and allows teachers the opportunity to explore ways to implement each standard into their classroom.
