**Description**

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) eight Standards for Mathematical Practice describe “ways in which developing student practitioners of the discipline of mathematics increasingly ought to engage with the subject matter as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise through the elementary, middle and high school years.” (CCSS) This stack will explore each of the eight Standards of Mathematical Practice and how teachers apply these practices to the mathematical content they are teaching. Each micro-credential will focus on how educators can use these practices to create a more rigorous and engaging mathematics classroom.
