**Discovering the Surface Area of a Cylinder**

After attending our sessions on the Standards for Mathematical Practice, watch this 27 minute video of a dynamic, 7th grade teacher in action. If you sign in to the Teaching Channel, you can print out the pages that you see him use with his students before class, during class, and as an exit ticket and homework. I recommend having these on hand ahead of time to make the most of your time with the video. As you watch, decide what Mathematical Practices you see in action. Provide examples from the video or the lesson materials to back up the reason you think each practice was evident. Leave a comment below describing one of the Mathematical Practices and listing several pieces of specific evidence that this practice was used.

**EQuIP (Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products)**

You can download the

**rubric**at Achieve.org, or download a

**feedback form**that you can type into for each dimension being evaluated in the rubric. Visit the EQuIP Exemplars tab for resources that have been evaluated as "Exemplar" and "Exemplar if Improved" by the Peer Review Panel.

**Resources for Mathematical Practices**

This guide from Scholastic gives a practical, short overview of each of the 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice as well as resource links for each Practice.

**Inside Mathematics - videos**

Inside Mathematics, the same folks who created the Problem of the Month multi-level problems, offer a look at classroom instruction examples of the Standards for Mathematical Practice in action.

**Look for and Make Use of Structure**

These 2 and 9 minute videos are useful in thinking about the seventh Standard for Mathematical Practice. Of course, other SMPs are present in this lesson as well. If you sign in on the Teaching Channel, you can collect the lesson under "Supporting Materials" in the second video to use with your class.

**Dan Meyer: Math Class Needs a Makeover**

If you haven't seen this video, it's time! Watch it before we work with

*our*textbooks to rework some questions for our classes with the Mathematical Practices in mind.

**Textbook Makeover**

If you are looking for some examples that beg to be re-written, here are some to start with.
