The eight mathematical practices have been paraphrased to make them more student-friendly at three levels: primary (K–2), intermediate (grades 3–5) and middle school (grades 6–8). The file has been presented as a MS Word file rather than a PDF so that you may modify it to best serve your students.
The eight mathematical practices comprise a large portion of what students will be held accountable to know on our testing. For that reason, it is important to explicitly teach these practices to them. They must be more than guidelines we use for our instruction; we must also show and explain them to students and teach them how to recognize their growth in these areas.
