Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards

NSF Awards: 1119163

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

This video will showcase the work of the Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards project in developing and testing a robust model of professional development that supports middle and high school teachers in building their awareness and understanding of the Common Core's Standards for Mathematical Practice. The model has been tested nationally and revised iteratively with 3 cohorts of mathematics educators. Our field tests have demonstrated significant differences for participating teachers when compared to non-participants in similar schools. The PD program will soon be available for wider use through facilitator and support materials being prepared for publication in collaboration with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Interpreting the Standards for Mathematical Practice will be a 20-hour course for teachers of grades 5–10 mathematics, designed to provide mathematics educators with a variety of mathematical learning experiences – including doing mathematics with colleagues, analyzing students’ mathematical thinking, and planning for instruction – that, when used together, deepen understanding of the SMP. The course draws on a set of Illustrations of the SMP designed for grades 5–10 teachers, that are centered on mathematics tasks and student dialogues that exemplify student mathematical thinking characteristic of the SMP.
