Reflection: Shared Expectations Visualizing the Standards for Mathematical Practice - Section 3: Collaborative Work: Visualizing Standards for Mathematical Practices


This lesson is one of my favorites because it takes a different approach compared to many of my other lessons. The student work samples all are great ways to think about the mathematical practices and are a reminder of what the big picture/connective tissue of k-12 mathematics can and should be:

Student Sample MP1 Make Sense of Problems and Persevere in Solving Them

Student Sample MP2 Reason Abstractly and Quantitatively

Student Sample MP3 Construct Viable Arguments and Critique the Reasoning of Others

Student Sample MP5 Use Appropriate Tools Strategically

The lesson shines the spotlight on different skills, especially artistic talent and visualization skills. The lesson also helps set shared expectations of the types of actions and thinking that are valued in our math classroom and can help set the tone of the learning culture in the classroom.

Visualizing the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Unit 1: Thinking Like a Mathematician: Modeling with Functions
Lesson 3 of 10

Objective: SWBAT understand and apply the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice by creating visual representations of the Math Practices in Action.

Big Idea: Students create elaborate visualizations of Mathematical Practices in this Collaborative and Engaging Activity!
