Mathematical Practice Standards

Completed one part of our “homework”--analyzing one of my Algebra lessons using the Practice Standards Rubric (here).  I had to see how my lesson fit all 8 of the practice standards:  
  1. 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
  5. Use appropriate tools strategically
  6. Attend to precision
  7. Look for and make use of structure
  8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

It was challenging to think through all of it in the context of one lesson.  It made me feel incompetent because I felt low in many areas, but I kept reminding myself that it is impossible to address all of the standards in one lesson.
