Strategic Choice in Practice Standard 5

The resources in this collection include problems, lessons, and activities that prompt students to consider the strengths and weaknesses of available tools when solving a problem and to make strategic choices about the tools that they will utilize (CCSS Practice Standard 5).

The tools that students may utilize in mathematics are wide in variety, but all contribute to their mathematical knowledge and understanding when used appropriately. Some of the tools students might use include calculators, paper and pencil, rulers and other measuring tools, connecting cubes, base ten blocks, spreadsheets and other dynamic software, online applets, and mobile apps.

Additional resources for educators can be found in a companion Professional Development collection for CCSS Practice Standard 5.
