Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Science & Engineering Practices – Part Three: Communication & Argument
The Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Science & Engineering Practices have much in common. The Implementing Common Core Standards in Math community’s summer series of three webinars has been exploring these connections and their implications for instruction, in science, in mathematics, and in integrated STEM experiences.
In the last session of the series, Dr. Sara Delano Moore, Director of Mathematics and Science at ETA hand2mind, focused on communication and argument in mathematics and science. Making the case for the problem they’ve solved is an important skill for our students to master. How do we help them present their evidence effectively? What is the connection to content area literacy discussed in English/Language Arts? Watch the webinar recording to learn strategies for helping your students make the case for their thinking.

Implementing Common Core Standards in Math is a professional learning community (PLC) that provides a platform, advice and support regarding the new roll out in our national math curriculum. Some of the topics to be discussed in this community include: suggested frameworks/time lines, formative/summative assessments, engaging lessons, manipulatives, content standards, mathematical practices, family involvement, technology, and differentiation. This program is sponsored by ETA hand2mind.
