1. How are the mathematical practice standards, twenty-first century skills, and Mathematical Habits of Mind/Interaction related? Why are they important? Why might using all three be effective in a mathematics classroom? Write a paragraph for each question. Label your assignment, Unit 5, Assignment 1 in the subject bar.

2. Choose a lesson that you will be teaching. Explicitly plan for implementing the mathematical practices, twenty-first century skills and the Habits of Mind. You can copy an existing lesson. Identify the content and practice standards in the lesson. Are you using a twenty-first century skill in the lesson? Identify how and where. What habits of mind will you incorporate in the lesson. Identify those.
You can take a picture of your lesson or upload the document. Label your assignment Unit 5, Assignment 2 in the subject bar.
