CCSS for Mathematical Practice are just as important as the content standards. The practices define various, yet connected aspects of engagement intended to help K-12 students become mathematically proficient. The eight math practices comprise notions of perseverance, reasoning, constructing arguments, modeling relationships and ideas, using appropriate tools, focusing on accuracy, seeking structure, and thinking logically using repeated reasoning. The goal is to help student not only use these mathematical practices, but to truly own them.
