Resources on Implementing 8 Mathematical Practices

Hey awesome web community,

1.) Here are the Common Core resources I mentioned that our group developed/collected during our time at PCMI: Rubric and Supplemental Doc. Even if you work outside of the country or in a private school, I think these docs would be helpful, because you would probably still want to implement similar mathematical habits of mind.

2.) If you do use it to evaluate your own task/teaching, can you please give us specific feedback on how to improve it? :)

Thanks!

  1. Oh, thank you thank you thank you. What a good piece of work! I haven't looked at it in excruciating detail, but even fifteen minutes with it is making me examine my practice and think about tasks I'm planning for the Fall.

  2. That makes me so happy!! We've worked REALLY hard on this.... The rubric is on its 7th draft, believe it or not. Our goal is to make it super usable by teachers, and to open up the space for dialogue about pedagogy.

  7. Hi Mimi,

    I couldn't access the links to your rubric or suplemental document. If you are willing to send them to me, I would love to see them.

  8. OK, or I can drop a copy into Dropbox. I guess my old server is blocking external file links, maybe.
