Standards for Mathematical Practices-“SMPs”

In addition to the Common Core Standards, every math instruction will focus on the Standards in Mathematical Practices known as the “8 SMPs”:

SMP #1-Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

SMP#2-Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

SMP #3-Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

SMP #4-Model with mathematics.

SMP #5-Use appropriate tools strategically.

SMP #6-Attend to precision.

SMP #7-Look for and make use of structure.

SMP #8-Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
