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

  1. Determine the meaning of the problem & plan the pathway towards a solution.
    • Tasks
  2. Monitor and evaluate progress, changing course as necessary, to ensure that a solution is reasonable.
    • Tasks
  3. Specify units of measure, use correct labeling and use the degree of precision appropriate for the problem.
    • Tasks
  4. 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/FieldsFarm Managers, Glassblowers, Manufacturing Managers, Economists, Civil Engineers,  Hydrologists

  1. Create coherent representations of the problem at hand.
    • Tasks
  2. Manipulate the symbols or figures without regard to the context.
    • Tasks
  3. Re-contextualize symbols back to the quantities they describe to make sense of the problem situation.
    • Tasks
  4. 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/FieldsTeacher,  Mathematicians, Statisticians

  1. Make conjectures and construct arguments by building a logical progression of statements.
    • Tasks
  2. Evaluate reasoning behind an argument or claim to identify the strengths and limitations.
    • Tasks
  3. 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/FieldsMathematical Technicians, Statisticians, Investment Strategists, Software Developer, Actuary, Water/Wastewater Engineers,

  1. Use geometric shapes and their properties to model physical objects.
    • Tasks
  2. Use equations, inequalities and/or functions to model and interpret situations.
    • Tasks
  3. Use statistics to model situations involving data.
    • Tasks
  4. Compare mathematical models for a situation (between representations or between two models that were generated using different assumptions).
    • Tasks
  5. Interpret the results of applying the model in the context of the situation.
    • Tasks
