Being able to think analytically, explain ones thinking, building a compelling argument, critiquing and responding to another's point of view - these are all key traits needed to build successful careers. Math offers plenty of opportunities to build these traits if the appropriate learning activities and the right kind of questions are asked. I'm really happy that the MP3 standard addresses this.
I created this Infographic to summarize what this standard - MP3 - Construct Viable Arguments and Critique the Reasoning of others means, how teachers and students can implement it and what questions to ask in class to build this Mathematical practice.
