Community Personal Connections- Matthew Miner, Sandi Murphy

**Perseverance & Sense-Making** – Look for the meaning of problems, plan pathways to a solution with consideration of available tools, and communicate with precision. **Occupations/Fields** – Recordkeeper, Surveyors, Construction Workers, Engineers, Instrument & Electrical Technicians, Lab Technicians, Sailors

- Determine the meaning of the problem & plan the pathway towards a solution.
- Tasks

- Monitor and evaluate progress, changing course as necessary, to ensure that a solution is reasonable.
- Tasks

- Specify units of measure, use correct labeling and use the degree of precision appropriate for the problem.
- Tasks

- Explain correspondences between different representations of a problem.
- Tasks

**Reason Abstractly & Quantitatively** – Seek to make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations. **Occupations/Fields** – Farm Managers, Glassblowers, Manufacturing Managers, Economists, Civil Engineers, Hydrologists

- Create coherent representations of the problem at hand.
- Tasks

- Manipulate the symbols or figures without regard to the context.
- Tasks

- Re-contextualize symbols back to the quantities they describe to make sense of the problem situation.
- Tasks

- Use units to reason and solve problems.
- Tasks

**Construct Viable Arguments & Critique the Reasoning of Others** – Understand and use stated assumptions, definitions, and previously established results to construct arguments, critique others’ arguments, and respond to the critiques of others. **Occupations/Fields** – Teacher, Mathematicians, Statisticians

- Make conjectures and construct arguments by building a logical progression of statements.
- Tasks

- Evaluate reasoning behind an argument or claim to identify the strengths and limitations.
- Tasks

- Clearly communicate (verbally and in writing) the reasoning used to justify conclusions or claims.
- Tasks

**Mathematical Modeling** – Use various mathematical structures such as graphs, equations, diagrams, scatterplots, etc. to represent real-world situations. **Occupations/Fields** – Mathematical Technicians, Statisticians, Investment Strategists, Software Developer, Actuary, Water/Wastewater Engineers,

- Use geometric shapes and their properties to model physical objects.
- Tasks

- Use equations, inequalities and/or functions to model and interpret situations.
- Tasks

- Use statistics to model situations involving data.
- Tasks

- Compare mathematical models for a situation
*(between representations or between two models that were generated using different assumptions).*- Tasks

- Interpret the results of applying the model in the context of the situation.
- Tasks
