# Math Practices Learning Progressions #LL2LU

#LL2LU SMP-1:  I can make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

#LL2LU SMP-2: I can reason abstractly and quantitatively.

#LL2LU SMP-3: I can construct a viable argument and critique the reasoning of others.

#LL2LU SMP-4: I can model with mathematics.

Work in progress…Coming soon…we hope!

#LL2LU SMP-5: I can use appropriate tools strategically.

#LL2LU SMP-6: I can attend to precision.

Illustrations coming soon.

Level 4:
I can attend to precision as I construct a viable argument and as I critique the reasoning of others.

Level 3:
I can attend to precision.

Level 2:
I can communicate my reasoning using proper mathematical vocabulary and symbols, and I can express my solution with units.

Level 1:
I can write in complete mathematical sentences using equality and inequality signs appropriately and consistently.

High School:

Level 4:
I can distinguish between necessary and sufficient language for definitions, conjectures, and conclusions.

Level 3:
I can attend to precision.

Level 2:
I can communicate my reasoning using proper mathematical vocabulary and symbols, and I can express my solution with units.

Level 1:
I can write in complete mathematical sentences using equality and inequality signs appropriately and consistently.

#LL2LU SMP-7: I can look for and make use of structure.

#LL2LU SMP-8: I can look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Mathematical Flexibility: I can apply mathematical flexibility to show what I know using more than one method.

Show Your Work: I can describe or illustrate how I arrived at a solution in a way that the reader understands without talking to me.

TEKS-F: I can analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas.

Sure! Jill and I are glad they are helpful for others, too, since they have been helpful for our students’ and our own understanding of using the practices.

We have really learned a lot from thinking through them. Only these so far 🙂
