This document is intended to show the connections to the Standards of
Mathematical Practices and the content standards and to get detailed
information at each level. Resources used: CCSS, Arizona DOE, Ohio DOE
and North Carolina DOE. This “Flip Book” is intended to help teachers
understand what each standard means in terms of what students must
know and be able to do. It provides only a sample of instructional
strategies and examples. The goal of every teacher should be to guide
students in understanding & making sense of mathematics.
Print on cardstock. Cut the tabs on each page starting with page 2. Cut the bottom
off of this top cover to reveal the tabs for the subsequent pages. Staple or bind the
top of all pages to complete your flip book.

Mathematical Practice Standards (MP) summary of each standard
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
In grade 7, students solve problems involving ratios and rates and discuss how they solved
them. Students solve real world problems through the application of algebraic and
geometric concepts. Students seek the meaning of a problem and look for efficient ways to
represent and solve it. They may check their thinking by asking themselves, “What is the
most efficient way to solve the problem?”, “Does this make sense?”, and “Can I solve the
problem in a different way?”.
Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
2. In grade 7, students represent a wide variety of real world contexts through the use of real
numbers and variables in mathematical expressions, equations, and inequalities. Students
contextualize to understand the meaning of the number or variable as related to the
problem and decontextualize to manipulate symbolic representations by applying properties
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of...
