By Meghan Everetteon March 15, 2013 #1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them What it means: Understand the problem, find a way to attack it, and work until it is done. Basically, you will find practice standard #1 in every math problem, every day. The hardest part is pushing students to solve tough problems by applying what they already know and to monitor themselves when problem-solving. Own it: Give students tough tasks and let them work through them. Allow wait time for yourself and your students. Work for progress and “aha” moments. The math becomes about the process and not about the one right answer. Lead with questions, but don’t pick up a pencil. Have students make headway in the task themselves. Useful resources: The Georgia Department of Education has created critical-thinking math tasks for every standard. The New York City Department of Education has a set of aligned tasks as well.
