This workshop is designed to help deepen parents’ understanding of the eight mathematical practices of the Common Core: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them; Reason abstractly and quantitatively; Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others; Model with mathematics; Use appropriate tools strategically; Attend to precision; Look for and make use of structure; and Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. It is our goal that workshop participants will leave with an understanding of how these practices are incorporated into daily instruction and how parents can help at home.
