This pack is designed for solving math problems using the CCSS. There are two templates outlining the standards: one color and one black and white. Your students will use the planning mat to work through a math problem and explain their thinking using words, numbers, drawings, and/or symbols. There is a checklist for the standards for mathematical practice that can be used as a student self-assessment tool. This is great for portfolios and for holding students accountable for using the standards in their daily work!
