"Students who lack understanding of a topic may rely on procedures too heavily. Without a flexible base from which to work, they may be less likely to consider analogous problems, represent problems coherently, justify conclusions, apply the mathematics to practical situations, use technology mindfully to work with the mathematics, explain the mathematics accurately to other students, step back for an overview, or deviate from a known procedure to find a shortcut. In short, a lack of understanding effectively prevents a student from engaging in the mathematical practices."
- Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice
We feel that the Math Games on HoodaMath.com have integrated Common Core State Standards. We recommend the use of the buddy system when playing our math games online to increase the level of effective understanding and student engagement.
