**Teaching the Common Core Math with SMP**® workshops offer practical, researched-based strategies that increase teacher effectiveness as they empower students to become independent and critical mathematical thinkers who justify their mathematical procedures, processes, problem-solving, and conclusions accurately to others in both oral and written form.PPLG’s

**Teaching the Common Core Math with SMP**® professional development focuses on the "Key Shifts in Math" and provides teachers with tools they can use immediately to develop mathematically proficient students!Back to Top

**Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP)**

Common Core defines the

**Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP)**as “the varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. They are “the ’processes and proficiencies’ with longstanding importance in mathematics education” based on standards defined by NCTM and NRC (p. 6). The SMP are not grade-level specific; however, the content standards are grade-specific.PPLG's

**OUTCOMES:**By the end of the workshop,

**will:***participants*- Have a common understanding about student learning expectations for Common Core Math SMP and content standards focusing content on the essential big ideas of mathematics
- Connect the mathematical practices to mathematical content in mathematics instruction
- Plan and implement SMP Formative Assessment Questions (FAQs) cards for priority standards to facilitate high-level conversations that promote rigor and retention
- Plan and implement SMP Formative Assessment Checks (FACs) cards for priority standards to develop and continually assess students’ mathematical thinking and understanding
- Be familiar with available online resources that support content-area instruction and assessment of the standards

By the end of the workshop,

**will have:***the school or district*- Exemplar SMP FAQs and FACs to support teacher understanding and effectiveness in connecting SMP to CCSSM and delivering mathematics instruction that supports robust mathematical thinking in students

**TARGET AUDIENCE:**K–12 Math Educators**NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS:**40**NUMBER OF DAYS:**2 full-day sessions for each domain or conceptual category workshop**NOTE:**This workshop is grade-banded for K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 Math educators (e.g., administrators, instructional leaders, teachers, and paraprofessionals). The workshop can be facilitated during summer session, intercessions, pre-planning, post-planning, or professional learning days. The participation of Math instructional leaders is strongly encouraged.**Recommended Resources****Recommended Reading***Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work: Grades 3 - 5 by*Matthew R.
