 Mathematical ideas can be communicated.
 I can communicate mathematical ideas in a variety of ways.
 Written and spoken words, pictures, manipulatives, symbols, and movements help communication.
 Charts and graphs can be used to see relationships.
 Different ways to communicate mathematically iclude speaking, writing and drawing, use manipulative objects, acting it out, pictures, and symbols.

Organize and consolidate their mathematical thinking through communication;
 Seeks new vocabulary, because of the power it provides by representing a grouping of specific ideas.
 Speaks, manipulates, draws, and writes to collect, organize, chart, and interpret mathematical ideas.



 Mathematical ideas can be communicated more accurately by matching the kind of communication to the intended audience.
 Mathematical ideas can be communicated in virtually every medium known.
 Mathematics is most often communicated orally, in writing, and through graphic representations.
 The closer the communcation is to accurately describing the mathematical ideas, the more likely the communication will be understood.

 Communicate their mathematical thinking coherently and clearly to peers, teachers, and others;
 Writes, draws, uses manipulatives, and animates objects to represent externally their internal understanding.


Acts out problems when solving.
Develops methods for recording numerical information: pictures, words, and/or numbers 
People think in different ways so it is important to be open minded to understand what other people mean mathematically. 
 Analyze and evaluate the mathematical thinking and strategies of others;
 Uses other peoples oral and written ideas.



I can use mathematical language or ideas to communicate better my ideas to other people.
When other people use mathematical ideas that I understand, it helps me understand what they mean better. 
 Use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas precisely
 Uses mathematical concepts, representations, vocabulary, and, symbols to explain parts of data, whole sets of data, mathematical processes, proceudures, examples, and solutions orally, in writing, pictures, using models, symbols, and acting/demonstrating real world problems.
