Unit 1: Teaching and Learning the Standards for Mathematical Practice

1.4.1 Taking the Next Step


While working through the next four units, think about:

  • How will you modify your teaching practices to ensure that students may engage in the SMP?
  • How will you assess the SMP?
  • How will you support students as they deepen their mathematical understanding through engagement in the SMP?
  • How will you provide opportunities for all students to engage in the SMP?


As you work through Units 2 through 5, consider:

  • Trying out some of the tasks in your classroom
  • Sharing the ideas learned with your colleagues


Onward to a deeper understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Practice!
