Major Shifts in Mathematics

Focus: to narrow and deepen mathematics in the classroom

Coherence: think across grades, and links to major topics within grades

Fluency: students can quickly and accurately determine simple calculations

8 Standards of Mathematical Practice

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

8 Standards of Mathematical Practice

5. Use appropriate tools strategically
