Look for and Make Use of Structure

Full Description: 

In this Heinemann website blog post, the authors unpack, examine, and reflect on Standard for Mathematical Practice 7, Look For and Make Use of Structure, from the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). They provide a detailed discussion of students’ use of SMP 7—which they describe as the ability to find patterns and repeated reasoning to help solve more complex problems—and share several examples.
