Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Math Journals - Section 1: Math Journals in the Classroom

 

The math journals I use in my classroom contain prompts to promote problem solving and class discussion. When we work in our math journals, students are covering a multitude of Common Core standards and mathematical practices, which is why I love using them. During journal time, students are given the opportunity to record their mathematical thinking in various ways.
