Included in the Common Core are eight standards for “mathematical practice”

that describe habits of mind employed by proficient users of mathematics.

Understanding and implementing the mathematical practices will be key to the

impact of the CCSS. The Implementing the Common Core Standards Workshop will

provide an introduction to the Common Core Standards for Mathematical

Practice, with an emphasis on algebra. Specifically, we will examine

standards MP2 (reason abstractly and quantitatively), MP7 (look for and

make use of structure), and MP8 (look for and express regularity in repeated

reasoning), with examples of how these practices can bring coherence to

seemingly disconnected standard topics in elementary, middle and high school

mathematics.
