| 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
||I can make a plan, carry out my plan, and evaluate its success.
- I will read the question and think about what it’s telling me.
- I will draw a picture, read the problem aloud, or write it in another way.
- I will ask myself if my answer makes sense.
- I will try something, revise my process, refine my thinking, and try again.
| 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively||I can use reasoning habits to help me contextualize and decontextualize problems.|
- I will take numbers and put them in a real-world context.
- I will take numbers out of context and work mathematically with them.
| 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others||I can make conjectures and critique the mathematical thinking of others.|
- I will construct, justify and communicate arguments by considering context, using example and non-examples, and using objects, drawings and diagrams.
- I will critique the reasoning of others by listening, comparing arguments, identifying flawed logic, and asking questions to clarify or improve arguments.
| 4. Model with mathematics||I can recognize math in everyday life and use math I know to solve everyday problems.|
- I will make assumptions and estimate to make complex problems easier.
- I will identify important quantities and use tools to show their relationships.
- I will evaluate my answer and make changes if necessary.
| 5. Use appropriate tools strategically||I know when to use certain tools to help me explore and deepen my math understanding.|
- I will have multiple tools in my math toolbox.
- I will know how and when to use certain tools.
- I will think about whether the tool I used gave me an answer that makes sense.
| 6. Attend to precision||I can use precision when solving problems and communicating my ideas.|
- I will calculate accurately.
- I will use the level of precision that's appropriate for the problem.
- My answers will match what the problem asked me to do - estimate or find an exact answer.
| 7. Look for and make use of structure||I can see and understand how numbers, shapes and objects are organized and put together as parts and wholes.|
- I will find, extend, analyze and create patterns.
- I will use patterns and structures to solve problems.
| 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning||I can notice when calculations are repeated and I can then find more efficient methods and shortcuts.|
- I will use patterns and structures to create and explain rules and shortcuts.
- I will use properties, rules and shortcuts to solve problems.
- I will reflect on my thinking before, during and after I solve a problem.
