Overview

Read Chapter 2: Exploring Standard 1: Make Sense of Problems and Persevere in Solving Them

"This book will be your roadmap to implementing the CCSS Standards for Mathematical Practice. The explanations, examples, activities, and suggestions are intended to guide you to a deepened understanding of the Practice Standards so your classroom is filled with students who reason, apply, and truly understand mathematics." Susan O'Connell and John SanGiovanni

The Standards for Mathematical Practice promise to elevate students' learning of math from knowledge to application and bring rigor to our math classrooms. But how can we incorporate the Practices into our teaching and ensure that our students develop these critical skills? Sue O'Connell and John SanGiovanni unpack each of the eight Practices and provide a wealth of practical ideas and activities to help you quickly integrate them into your existing math program. Putting the Practices Into Action breaks each standard down to address:

  • why the standard is important
  • how to interpret and understand the standard
  • how to bring the standard into your current teaching.

The authors show the true power of the standards by describing how they intermingle, blending together to empower students to use math and think mathematically. With classroom vignettes, sample activities, and helpful teaching tips, Putting the Practices Into Action brings the standards to life by illustrating what they look like in real classrooms. Discover how to integrate the Practices into your teaching, and let the journey of implementation begin.
