Back to School Learning! Ahhh...the Common Core Standards! As if we don’t have enough to teach in the classroom, the list of Standards for Mathematical Practice at the end of the math standards sends shivers down our spines!
*Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
*Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
*Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
*Model with mathematics.
*Use appropriate tools strategically.
*Attend to precision.
*Look for and make use of structure.
*Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
"Niners" is a game that I tweaked to specifically address these standards. I have been so pleased with my students thinking, and their enthusiasm to persevere in their problem solving! Not only have I seen them dig in and strategically apply the math tools that I have shared with them, but they also are quick to cheer and applaud for their peers as they critique the reasoning of others. What more can a teacher ask for?
