These posters are designed to accompany the Common Core State Standards Mathematical Practices. They are written in student-friendly language so that students can refer to them throughout the year and self-assess their progress with a practice.
The posters say the following:
MP1 I make sense of problems and think of ways to solve them. If I get stuck, I don't give up.
MP2 I know how to think about words and numbers to solve problems.
MP3 I use math to explain why I am right. I can talk about the math that others do, too.
MP4 I choose and apply math I know to show and solve problems from everyday life.
MP5 I know how to pick the right tools to solve math problems.
MP6 I am careful about what I write and say, so that my ideas about math are clear.
MP7 I use patterns in math to help me solve problems.
MP8 I look for things that repeat and make inferences about them.
They come in four different colors - green, blue, pink, and yellow.
