## CCMP7 - Look for and Make Use of Structure

Students are taught to look for patterns when solving mathematical problems or situations. Starting in the lower grades, they learn that some math problems can be decomposed and recomposed without its end value changing (the distributive property). In this module, you’ll see teachers demonstrating how ratios, percentages, and fractions can have very similar meanings. Students can use this knowledge to simplify and solve more difficult mathematical problems in the now and in the higher grades.

### CCMP7 - Part 1 - Discerning a Pattern

Patterns are essential to mathematics. In this module, you’ll view a teacher encouraging his students to find the pattern in a math problem and use it to predict/solve for the answer.

### CCMP7 - Part 2 - Making Connects with Patterns and Structure

Patterns, if they are general, can help students predict the next steps in mathematical problem solving. Although this can be a difficult task for some students, everyone can, according to the teacher in this module, watch for patterns that can become tools for math problem solving.

### CCMP7 - Part 3 - Shifting Perspectives

Students look at different ways that numbers can be represented. Ratios, fractions, percentages are all discussed by the students and teacher in a classroom setting.
