Considered by many to be the most innovative part of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) provide a window into what it means to do mathematics. The SMP are intended to have a lasting impact on U.S. math teaching by focusing on mathematics as a discipline, not just as a collection of computational tools. This session will examine the mathematical practices in classroom tasks with an emphasis on how teachers can use the practices to deepen our own content knowledge and to improve our instruction. Example tasks will span K—12.
