Standards for Mathematical Practice

Mathematical Practice Questions to ponder before analyzing for use of the SMP
MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Does this make sense?
MP2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Where in the task are aspects contextualized and decontextualized?
MP3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Is the logic valid or flawed? Why?
MP4 Model with mathematics. When analyzing the task, what mathematical aspects and relationships are present?
MP5 Use appropriate tools strategically. How does using tools facilitate the understanding and solution to the task?
MP6 Attend to precision. Are aspects of the task communicated precisely?
MP7 Look for and make use of structure. What patterns or structures are embodied in the task?
MP8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. What reasoning skills or patterns are repeatedly employed in solving the task?
