Thought on Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards

I have just returned home from a wonderful week in Boston, learning with math educators from all across the country.We were privileged to be part of EDC's Facilitator Institute for their new course, Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards. The course is supported by a website that contains 30 illustrations of the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Each illustration consists of a mathematics task, student dialogue, teacher reflection questions, and many other resources. I can't wait to use these with teachers! The course activities prompted rich discussions among the participants this week, and I feel that my understanding of the math practices is deeper. Here are some random thoughts related to this week:
This is a small start, but at least it's a start. I have a workshop in the morning, so this will have to do for now. Maybe I won't wait another five years before I post again.
