Implementing CCSS Practice Standard 6


Common Core’s Mathematical Practice Standard 6, Attend to Precision, calls for students to be clear in their reasoning, calculation, and communication through the precise use of words, symbols, units of measure, mathematical expressions, and processes. They recognize various levels of precision and apply them appropriately; they calculate accurately and efficiently and label axes of graphs appropriately.

These resources have been selected to help teachers and math specialists implement MP 6 in the classroom. They include tools and references to be used by students themselves, mathematical tasks and problems that provide opportunities for children to attend to precision in a variety of ways, and lessons and techniques for teachers to use with students to foster these habits of mind.

A companion Professional Development collection includes resources to help teachers and math specialists understand the intent and scope of MP 6 and plan for successful implementation.
