Review of Common Core State Standards for Mathematic
First, review the Introduction and Standards for Mathematical Practice of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (pp. 1-8).

Then, read the article published by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics answers: “How might we use the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics to keep the deep learning of every student at the center of our work?” (Russell, 2012, p. 50).

CCSS – Standards of Practice for Mathematics

For your initial post,

1. Reflect on your thoughts related to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS; Florida modified the CCSS and adopted the Mathematics Florida Standards in 2014).

2. The CCSS for Mathematical Practice are the processes and proficiencies that educators should strive to develop in their students. Of the eight standards for mathematical practice, select two that stand out to you the most and explain why. Refer to both the article and the CCSS document in your response.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
