Mathematics

30 minutes

- Students will understand the benefits of journaling in mathematics.
- Students will create their own mathematical journal.
- Students will be able to use their mathematical journal to keep track of their understanding and progress.

The teacher will introduce the concept of journaling and how it can be used in mathematics. They will explain that journaling helps students to reflect on their learning, identify areas of difficulty, and track their progress over time. The teacher will also provide examples of the types of mathematical journal entries that students can make.

The teacher will provide a live demonstration of mathematical journaling. They will show students how to record their mathematical thinking, identify their thought processes, and write down any questions they have.

The students will work in groups of two or three to create their own mathematical journal entries. The teacher will provide a list of mathematical problems for the students to work on together. Each group will then create a journal entry documenting their work on the problem.

The students will work independently to add to their mathematical journal entries. They will be given a set of mathematical problems to solve and will be required to record their thinking process and any difficulties they encountered.

The teacher will recap the benefits of journaling in mathematics and how it can help students to become better problem solvers. They will encourage students to continue to use their mathematical journals to record their progress and reflect on their learning.
