Common Core Standards for MATHEMATICAL PRACTICES

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

4. Model with mathematics.

5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

6. Attend to precision.

7. Look for and make use of structure.

8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.


Problem Solving Strategies

  • Guess and Test
  • Use a Variable
  • Draw a Picture
  • Look for a Pattern
  • Make a List (Tables)
  • Solve a Simpler Problem
  • Work Backwards
  • Make a Model (use objects)
  • Solve an Equation
  • Use Cases
  • Use Direct Reasoning
  • Use Indirect Reasoning
