Each vocabulary word has its own flap, and each flap has 3 parts.
Explain it! - Under the Explain it! flap, students explain the word in a way that makes sense to them. This could be words, pictures, or numbers.
Here's How it Works! - This is where students apply the word and how it works mathematically.
How might this be used in the real world? - We want students to think mathematically beyond math class, so this requires them to brainstorm ways in which the concept might be used in the world they know.
