Week 31

In Week 24, we listed the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices. Look for and make use of structure is the seventh standard. Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. They can step back to see an overview and shift perspective. These students see complicated things as single objects or as being composed of several objects. Ask your student to share a pattern that was recently investigated in class and describe its structure.
