Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Job Offers and Cell Phone Plans: Making Informed Decisions with Mathematics - Section 6: HW: Self Reflection on Cell Phone Plan Writing Activity


I try to integrate writing into my math classroom on a daily basis, and asking students to self-reflect on writing is an important part of the process of teaching and learning how to write. I find that students are very self-reflective and hold high expectations for themselves, especially when they have the time, space and structure to express those reflections. Student Self Reflections tend to be stronger when students go through the process of the peer review.

My opinion is going through the peer review pushes students to think about the criteria and expectations for an assignment and critiquing a classmate's work can provide a more insightful and detailed analysis of their own work.

Job Offers and Cell Phone Plans: Making Informed Decisions with Mathematics

Unit 4: Making Informed Decisions with Systems of Equations
Lesson 9 of 12

Objective: SWBAT model real life scenarios with linear equations. SWBAT use understanding of mathematics to make informed decisions as a consumer. SWBAT construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

Big Idea: Students learn to act as knowledgeable consumers as they model cell phone plans and make decisions about which plan best meets their needs.
