math journal recap.
In an effort for growth and improvement in the open-ended portion of the ASK...
One strategy I decided to implement in an effort to improve math scores was a math journal.
math journal update.
I use this as my daily warm-up activity for math. It provides a nice daily routine for the students to get settled in (especially important in the middle school setting where students relocate every period).
I require the students to answer each open ended question with:a number sentence, a real sentence, and a picture.As seen below, I started the year with easy questions to get the students accustomed to expressing math concepts in the journal format.
So far so good!
