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!
