This set of 9 checklists helps teachers begin to familiarize their students with the Standards for Mathematical Practice and the behaviors and skills needed to be successful mathematicians. Self-assessment is a key part of getting students involved with their own learning and better understanding our expectations for them.
The Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice are extremely rigorous, and students in grades 3-5 should be expected to demonstrate a higher level of math thinking than ever before. But do the students know what they mean?
These math standards can most definitely be approached in a developmentally appropriate way for intermediate students—but do need to be explicitly taught and modeled. This resource gives you the checklists (in two formats--black and white and color) and teaching suggestions and ideas for how to really help your students understand the importance of these math practices.
In addition to checklists for all 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice, this set includes an overall “Math Behaviors Checklist” for students to start self-monitoring those basic study skills that will make them more successful in math class.
Making anchor charts to match, teaching mini-lessons, and using these checklists can help students understand that math is more than getting the right answer! I hope these help you and your students begin to make sense of the math practice standards. Math is power!
