Mathematical procedures, strategies, or skills Examples of procedures – Find the slope of a line, simplify an algebraic expressions, find the roots of a quadratic equation, find the area of a trapezoid,find the prime factorization of a number. Examples of strategies – Draw an auxiliary line – Add zero x 2 -2x-24+ 1-1 = (x - 1) 2 - 25 – Multiply by one (sin 2 θ +cos 2 θ =1) – Multiply an equation with fractions by the lcm – Use a table to record information with word problems (mixture problems) – Draw a diagram to model a physical situation Examples of skills – Identify relevant information in a word problem

To explain a procedure, strategy, or skill a teacher would: Focus the Procedure • Establish clearly what kind of problem the procedure targets. • Demonstrate circumstances when students may encounter such problem (and thus need to use the procedure). • Promote flexibility by comparing pros and cons of the target procedure with those of alternative ones that might be used in similar situations.
