Building Math Metacognition in Three Easy Steps

2020-08-26T00:49:14+00:00

In this article, you will learn:

  • Why grade-level expectations for mathematics were intentionally designed with two types of standards: Standards for Mathematical Content and Standards for Mathematical Practice.
  • Building metacognition in math can be achieved when we understand and integrate the content and practice standards, determine the grade-level progressions of the practice standards, and support students to use these practices on a daily basis through direct conversations about math.
  • It is imperative that we teach our students to think like mathematicians by asking questions that foster metacognition and teach them to speak like mathematicians when making ownership statements that demonstrate that they are actively integrating both cognitive and metacognitive skills, both mathematical content and mathematical practice.
