  • Dr. Bill McCullum at the University of Arizona led the writing efforts for the CCSS-M, and he groups the SMPs like this. He takes the problem solving and precision Standards and groups them together as overarching habits of mind…these two are relevant at all times. Then he groups the reasoning and explaining Standards together and calls them “reasoning and explaining”…this certainly corresponds to “reasoning and communication” from the CPRs.Next puts the modeling and tools standards together, which is where we can see the strongest evidence for “representations” from the CPRs.And finally, he grouped structure and generalizing together, which is where we can see some evidence of “connections” from the CPRs, though this link is a bit weaker.As you can see, this organization points out that the CPRs were purposely integrated into the SMPs from the beginning. Take a mental snapshot of this diagram…as you become more familiar with the SMPs in the coming months, remember that they are built upon the CPRs…those important processes that students should be using on a daily basis to help them learn and use mathematics at a deep level.
