(a)(2) The process standards describe ways in which students are expected to engage in the content. The process standards weave the other K&S today so students can be successful problem solvers and use math efficiently and effectively in daily life. Apply math to problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. Use a problem-solving model that incorporates ANALYZING GIVEN INFORMATION, FORMULATING A PLAN OR STRATEGY, determine a solution, justifying the solutions, and evaluating the problem-solving process and reasonableness of the solution. Select tools such as real objects, manipulative, ALGORITHMS, paper and pencil, and technology and techniques such as mental math, estimation, number sense, GENERALIZATION AND ABSTRACTION to solve problems. Communicate math ideas, reasoning, and their implications using representations such as symbols, diagrams, graphs, COMPUTER PROGRAMS, and language. Use math relationships to connect and communicate math ideas. Display, explain, or justify math ideas and arguments using precise math language in written or oral communication.
