Standards: Math Practice #4: Modeling with Mathematics

This video is an overview of Standards of Mathematical Practice #4: Modeling with Mathematics.  If you are not familiar with the SMPs, they are pages 6-8 of the Common Core Standards.

The SMPs tell us what the STUDENTS should be doing while trying to learn all the grade level standards.  They are a wonderful addition to our standards, but they are not very clear.  That’s why I am LOVING Mike Flynn’s new book Beyond Answers: Exploring Mathematical Practices with Young Children.  The book clearly defines what it looks like when kids are engaging in the Math Practices.
