8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

How are high school teachers helping their students look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning?

How can students be helped to:

  • notice if calculations are repeated
  • look both for general methods and for shortcuts
  • maintain oversight of the process, while attending to the details
  • evaluate the reasonableness of their intermediate results

What are you doing to help students develop this practice? What makes it hard? What challenges are you encountering?
