Five Dimensions of Mathematical Proficiency – Podcast Episode 16 | Podcast Episode 16
Classnotes Podcast (July 13, 2007) What does it mean to be mathematically proficient? The Committee on Mathematics Learning was established by the National Research Council in 1998. In its report, Helping Children Learn Mathematics, the committee chose the term “mathematical proficiency” to capture what it means to learn mathematics successfully. The understanding is that all students need to be on the road to mathematical proficiency beginning in pre-kindergarten. Kathryn Brown, an IDRA education associate and developer of IDRA’s Math Smart! model, outlines the five dimensions of mathematical proficiency and provides tips on helping students develop their mathematical thinking. Kathy is interviewed by Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center.
