The Math Practices Cards support students gaining an understanding of the practices mathematicians use while becoming proficient and effective thinkers who can pose and solve problems.
There are three versions of each card. The first type of card has direct information to aid in prompting or reminding students of available choices. The other is designed with guiding questions for students to have more agency and name the skills and strategies related to practices based on their own prior knowledge. The third version is more of a poster that can be used as an anchor chart or a reflection tool with students and teachers recording ideas directly onto the spaces available.
The Math Practices Cards are based on the USA Common Core 8 Mathematical Practices, the language has been adapted to be suitable to upper primary or lower secondary students.
These Math practices are useful to all mathematicians (teachers, parents and students) regardless of what age or educational system they are in. The practices help mathematicians of all ages develop a shared language connected to problem solving practices.
