Presented at the start of every grade outlined in the Ontario Mathematics curriculum document is a set of seven expectations that describe the mathematical processes students need to learn and apply as they work to achieve the expectations outlined within the five strands. Students should be actively engaged in applying these processes throughout the program, rather than in connection with particular strands. As well the NCTM Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” with longstanding importance in mathematics education.
These posters make explicit what the criteria for mathematical thinking is for students. The posters can be displayed on a bulletin board or copied on a smaller scale and used in conjunction with interactive student notebooks.
These posters would be a great complement to my best selling product Math Chat Speech Bubbles
