Math Process Standards

Conceptual Understanding & Synthesizing and Applying

PS.1 Make Sense of Problems and Persevere in Solving Them

What Process Standard Could you Cover with the Problem Below?

The 2nd grade art class is building a sculpture that is 6 and 1/2 yards tall. It will be built in 18 inch sections. How many sections will they need to build?

How can we gather evidence that students are developing a conceptual understanding and synthesizing and applying mathematical skills when making sense of problems and persevering in solving them?

PS. 2 Reason Abstractly and Quantitatively

Numbers to Words & Words to Numbers...Explain the Relationship Between Quantities

30 divided by 6

"How many 6s go into 30?"

5/6 divided by 1/6

"How many 1/6s go into 5/6?"

How does looking for "key" words fail us in this problem?

Jackie has 8 key chains in her collection. How many more key chains does she need to have 13 key chains all together?

What Process Standards Could You Cover with the Problem Below?

Brian and Andrew are raising money to donate to the Indianapolis Zoo. Bridget had $1.75 in her pocket. Angelica had three and three fourths dollars in her purse. If Bridget and Angelica contributed all of the cash they had, how much money did Brian and Andrew get from Bridget and Angelica?
