At all grade levels, students will be challenged to incorporate the eight 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 sense of structure.
  8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
