The Common Core Math Standards describe eight Standards for Mathematical Practice applicable to students of all grades. Different than the grade-specific content standards, these practices describe the habits of mind--the ways of thinking about math--that mathematicians and successful students use. In this course, participants will explore and unpack the eight math practices, learning what they mean and how they can be developed across all grades. Participants will read articles to deepen their understanding of the practices, watch videos to see how other teachers are fostering the practices, listen to interviews with experts, and collaboratively develop ideas and strategies for addressing the practices. Participants will develop or rework a lesson to address two or more of the mathematical practices that can be used in the classroom now.
