I created my own posters for the Common Core Standards of Mathematical Practices. I combined the best from what I found from others and added my own structure. Necessity dictated my doing this for two reasons: 1) I wanted to respect others’ copyrights, and 2) I couldn’t find any that were appealing to secondary students.
With that said, I offer MPJ’s SMP Posters for use in the classroom. Each poster here has the following features:
The summary of the Practice straight from the Common Core documents, as listed in that famous grey box
The verbage of the Practice written in kid-friendly, first person language
A single word that embodies the particular practice
A diagram that displays an application of the practice, using Algebra as an example so as to span both middle and high school
A group of words that relate
A list of questions that pertain
A clip art image of a high school student to drive home the point that the practices are for them and not the teacher
An instructive statement that includes the word “Think”
A special shout out goes to the Jordan School District’s SMP posters for elementary schools which were the initial inspiration for this set. Other sources include: Eastern Bristol High School and Carroll County.
