MPs in High School: Perseverance

We have two different programs at EDC devoted to the Standards for Mathematical Practice., Implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice (IMPS) and Developing Mathematical Practice in High School (DMP). For more information, see each program’s website:

These programs involve workshops for teachers. Al Cuoco, the director of the Center for Mathematics Education at EDC, has written some essays that show how mathematical practices can be used in high school. The essays were written for these projects, but we think the essays might be useful to others working to implement the Common Core. We’ll post the essays here in the coming weeks.

The first essay is on perseverance. (Click on the link to view PDF.)
