Standard 7: Look for and make use of structure

This web page from the Inside Mathematics initiative aims to guide and support educators in understanding the seventh CCSS Practice Standard. Instances of teachers engaging students to be mathematically proficient with the capacity to "look closely to discern a pattern or structure" are described in Classroom Observations and illustrated in a video excerpt of fourth grade students discussing how to multiply 26 times 4 and in another video clip of fifth grade students discussing the different ways to write a rule. The video clips are excerpts from public lessons: "Number Operations" and "Numerical Patterning" (both cataloged separately).
