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

'We need to start,' said my students last week. They told me to hurry up, read the problem and pass out the paper. This is a noticeable change in student attitudes toward problem solving. They are no longer meek, frightened, inhibited problem solvers.
