### What are math standards?

The math standards provide clarity and specificity rather than broad general statements. The Common Core concentrates on a clear set of math skills and concepts. Students will learn concepts in a more organized way both during the school year and across grades.

**What do the standards for mathematical practice mean to you?**

The Common Core’s Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) describe what students at any grade level are doing as they learn mathematics. Educators can help their students develop the varieties of expertise described in the SMP by providing engaging, meaningful learning activities in the classroom.

## What are the eight standards for mathematical practice?

In the Common Core standards, the process standards are described as eight Common Core Mathematical Practices (see Figure 1) that build on the NCTM process standards (communication, representation, reasoning and proof, connections, and problem solving) and the National Research Council’s five strands of mathematical proficiency (procedural fluency,…

**What are the Common Core math standards?**

Common Core Math contains 11 Standards to cover such topics as counting, one-to-one correspondence, addition and multiplication, measurement of time, distance, and money, and fractions and decimals. Depending on the student’s grade, there are 4 or 5 standards to be covered that school year.

### What are the mathematical practices?

Mathematical practice comprises the working practices of professional mathematicians: selecting theorems to prove, using informal notations to persuade themselves and others that various steps in the final proof are convincing, and seeking peer review and publication, as opposed to the end result of proven and published theorems.

The math standards include both content standards and mathematical practices (process standards) outlining what each student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade.The standards collectively define the skills and knowledge all students need to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live.
