The Common Core State Standards mandate mathematical habits of mind, which are ways of approaching and thinking about mathematical problems. EDC has two high school curricula specifically organized around mathematical habits of mind and strategically designed to help high school students develop these mathematical ways of thinking.
The CME Project and Transition to Algebra both use curricular devices-written dialogues occurring among a cast of students with different “mathematical personalities” and visual images of mathematical thought experiments.
This project, Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards, aims to:
- Extend the existing set of dialogues and visual images for students
- Create tools to show teachers these mathematical practices in action and to help teachers implement them
The tools for teacher professional development will include videos and written materials, Interactive apps and webinars may also be developed as well.
