The Standards for Mathematical Practices
This week's My Wisconsin Standard will examine the Standards for Mathematical Practices. The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics teachers at all levels should look to develop in their students. These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” that have been important in mathematics education for a long time.
