## What are the NCTM content standards?

This practical guide includes three 11″ x 17″ sheets to display the expectations across the four grade bands for each of the five Content Standards: Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Data Analysis and Probability, and Measurement.

## What is assessment NCTM?

In the Assessment Standards, NCTM (1995) defined assessment as “the process of gather- ing evidence about a student’s knowledge of, ability to use, and disposition toward math- ematics and of making inferences from that evidence for a variety of purposes” (p. 3).

Why are the NCTM standards important?

According to the NCTM, the process standards “highlight the mathematical processes that students draw on to acquire and use their [mathematical] content knowledge.” This allows students to learn through the application of methods they can return to anytime they are approaching a difficult mathematic problem.

### What are the six principles for school mathematics according to the NCTM?

The Principles for school mathematics provide guidance in making these decisions….The six Principles address overarching themes:

• Equity. Excellence in mathematics education requires equity—high expectations and strong support for all students.
• Curriculum.
• Teaching.
• Learning.
• Assessment.
• Technology.

### How many math practice standards are there?

8 Mathematical Practices
The Standards for Mathematical Content are a balanced combination of procedure and understanding. The 8 Mathematical Practices are listed below.

What are the math practice standards?

Standards for Mathematical Practice

• Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
• Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
• Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
• Model with mathematics.
• Use appropriate tools strategically.
• Attend to precision.
• Look for and make use of structure.

## What is math proficiency level?

It includes a disposition toward mathematics that is personal. Mathematically proficient people believe that mathematics should make sense, that they can figure it out, that they can solve mathematical problems by working hard on them, and that becoming mathematically proficient is worth the effort.

### What are standards in mathematics?

Some define “standards” as statements about the mathematics to be learned that also give levels of performance expected at each grade. Others think “standards” should specify very fine-grained behavioral objectives in mathematics for each grade.
