Standards for Mathematical Practice

Online Resources

The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that


mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students.
These practices rest on important processes and proficiencies with
longstanding importance in mathematics education. The first of these are the
NCTM process standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof,
communication, representation, and connections. The second are the strands
of mathematical proficiency specified in the National Research Councils
report Adding It Up: adaptive reasoning, strategic competence, conceptual
understanding (comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations and
relations), procedural fluency (skill in carrying out procedures flexibly,
accurately, efficiently and appropriately), and productive disposition (habitual
inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile, coupled
with a belief in diligence and ones own efficacy).
