Description

Get your students writing about math and practicing constructed response writing with 100 math journal prompts! These journal prompts were written for the Common Core Standards, but I've added an additional version WITHOUT the standards. This will allow you to use these journals with ANY math curriculum. This product also includes a link to Google Docs for use in Google Classroom!

The math prompts are sure to improve your students' critical thinking skills, as well as provide essential practice in writing about math. This will be especially important as students begin taking constructed response Common Core assessments. Be sure to follow my blog for regular updates on how I'm using math journals in my classroom!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths 𝘢 and 𝘣 + 𝘤 is the sum of 𝘢 × 𝘣 and 𝘢 × 𝘤. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
