Writing in Math

Math Journals

A math journal is a place where every student has the opportunity to verbalize their math knowledge to their teacher, internally to themselves and to their classmates. Students' writing becomes a source for social interaction as they read journal entries to partners and the whole class, talk about their learning and listen to others share different levels of mathematical reasoning.

To learn more about one teacher's experience and research on math journals, refer to the article "Using Journals in Math."

Here's What People Are Saying

I have really enjoyed using Exemplars. Teaching students how to become better problem solvers has been easier and the students have a more concrete format in which to follow. The rubric is very user friendly. It has really allowed my high-achievers to reach a new level. Problem solving is usually a weakness for them, because they only want to get the right answer... this has opened their eyes to a new way to express themselves mathematically.
