Standards for Mathematical Practice

The Standards for Mathematical Practice (MP) describe the skills that mathematics educators should seek to develop in their students. The practices rest on important processes and proficiencies with longstanding importance in mathematics education. The mathematical practices for each grade, together with Ohio’s Learning Standards for Mathematics, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a rigorous, coherent, useful and logical subject.

The mathematical practices represent a picture of what it looks like for students to understand and do mathematics in the classroom and should be integrated into every mathematics lesson for all students. The description of the mathematical practices remains the same at all grades. However, this webpage provides examples of how student performance will change and grow as they engage with and master new and more advanced mathematical ideas across the grade levels.
