# Vetting Online Resources that Support Teachers' Promotion of Mathematical Habits of Mind

## Abstract

In this report, four secondary school mathematics teachers and one university mathematics teacher educator present an instrument designed to evaluate the usefulness and relevance of online resources at helping teachers develop practical conceptions of mathematical habits of mind as described by the Common Core’s Standards for Mathematical Practice. Descriptions for how the instrument was developed, its components parts, and an example of its use are provided in detail.## References
