Help students understand the mathematical practices by relating them to basketball. The Mathematical Practices: All-Star Mathematician Stars is one giant simile comparing the Common Core Mathematical Practices to basketball . Students receive an “All Star Mathematician Card” for each of the eight practices. Each card includes a simile for a mathematical practice related to basketball. For example, Practice #4: Model with Mathematics includes a model a coach shows the team for each play. On each card is a place to mark when students demonstrate that an understanding of each practice. In addition, cards offer a couple tips for each practice. Included is a chart for teachers to mark student progress.
What a fun way to get students excited about the mathematical practices!
