Unit 1: Teaching and Learning the Standards for Mathematical Practice

1.4 Looking Ahead

Let's revisit our learning objectives. At this point you should be able to:

  • Describe the difference between the Standards for Mathematical Content and the SMP.
  • Understand the importance of the eight standards for mathematical practice.
  • Explain how the standards for mathematical practice define what it means for a student to be mathematically proficient.
Time to Reflect

In Units 2 through 5, you will have the opportunity to view classrooms in action, examine student work, read pertinent information on the SMP, and do mathematics. In your Metacognitive Journal, reflect on the following :

  • Some of the new ideas you have gained in this introductory unit
  • Questions you have
  • Some of the challenges that you anticipate as you prepare to support your students in their use of the SMP
