- Students will actively engage within a mathematics community to create, solve, and refine mathematically-rich problems that integrate the concepts of number, number sense, operation, patterns, measurement, geometry, and data analysis.
- Students will clearly communicate their mathematical thinking to others in verbal and written forms, and to explicate these skills in their students.
- Students will compare and contrast research-based teaching strategies that incorporate and extend student thinking.
- Students will design meaningful problem-based learning experiences and lesson plans that center on mathematical concepts that encourage the integration of technology and inquiry.
- Students will investigate and apply a wide range of constructionist-based pedagogies applicable to the mathematics classrooms and supported by NCTM and Ohio Academic Content Standards.
- Students will use cultural, historical, and scientific applications of mathematics to make a wide variety of connections within the field of mathematics and between mathematics and other aspects of the overall curriculum.
- Students will view school mathematics content as a discipline involving the processes of investigation, verification, exploration, explanation, discovery, conjecture testing, representation, reflection, and communication.
