1. Make Sense of problems
Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning
of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution.
As a teacher I will have students analyze givens, constraints, relationships and
goals in each math problem.

2 Reason Abstractly and Quantitatively
Mathematically proficient students makes sense of quantities and their
relationship in problem situations
Two complementary abilities to hear problems, contextualize (pauses as needed
during manipulation process and decontextualize (abstract a given situation and
represent it symbolically).
As a teacher when solving problems I will ask students to reason why a problem
equals what it does and why they are to take the steps required to get the answer.

3 Construct Viable Arguments and Critique the Reasoning of Others
Mathematically proficient students understand and use stated assumptions,
definitions, and previously established results in constructing arguments.
Make conjectures and build a logical progression of statements to explore the
truth of their conjectures.
I will have students logically think about the problem they are solving by first
showing an example similar to the problems they will solve.

4 Model with Mathematics
Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve
problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace.
They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their
relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and
formulas.
As a teacher I will have students do problems that relate to everyday life that
involves math.

5 Use Appropriate Tools Strategically
Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a
mathematical problem.
They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding
of concepts.
Since I plan to teach younger students (3
rd
grade and below) and they are still
learning the basics of math I wouldnt think a calculator was necessary. Although
a ruler could be.

6 Attend to Precision
Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others; they
try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning.
They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a
degree of precision appropriate for the problem context.
As a teacher I will allow students to collaborate with their partner when working
independently to help each other out, so they are able to practice telling someone
else how to do a problem.

7 Look For and Make Use of Structure
Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure.
For example, they can see 5 - 3(x -y)
2
as 5 minus a positive number times a square
and use that to realize that its value cannot be more than 5 for any real
numbers x and y.
But since I want to teach younger grades I will have students identify the patterns
they see in similar problems.

8 Look for and Express regularity in Repeated Reasoning
Mathematically proficient students notice if calculations are repeated, and look
both for general methods and for shortcuts.
As they work to solve a problem, mathematically proficient students maintain
oversight of the process, while attending to the details.
I will show students how to do a problem in a few different ways. The first one
will be the long way so they can understand the reasoning and then I will show
them how to do the short cut if there is one.
