CORE’s Standards for Mathematical Practices rubric was developed to assist teachers and instructional leaders in effectively implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) to build mathematical proficiency while students are learning math content (concepts and skills). It is intended to serve as a guide to assist administrators, coaches, and classroom teachers in understanding key instructional elements that must be in place to support high student achievement.

While teaching students strategies to become automatic with basic math facts may initially take more time, in the long run it will benefit students much more than memorization. When students learn strategies, they are more likely to retain their automaticity. And because these strategies are generalizable to whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and even integers and variable expressions, they will support mathematical fluency well beyond elementary school.
