Washingon State Teacher Certification: Mathematics (5-12)

Standard 1: Standards for Mathematical Practices

Demonstrate ability to embed CCSS-M Mathematical Practices in the instructional process to deepen conceptual understanding:

1.A:
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
1.B:
Reason abstractly and quantitatively
1.C:
Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
1.D:
Model with mathematics
1.E:
Use appropriate tools strategically
1.F:
Attend to precision
1.G:
Look for and make use of structure
1.H:
Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

The B.S. degree in Mathematics, with a concentration in Secondary Education, covers these standards in the courses indicated in the table below. Entries represent the level of competency expected in each course with 1 being low, 2 medium, and 3 high.
