Math Process Journal is for math students in grades 5-12.
Help students develop a stronger conceptual understanding of mathematics based off of application problems while simultaneously developing their mathematical communication skills.
Students will choose one question from an assignment. Copy the question at the top of the page, and then answer the question as usual with all work shown. The students will also explain each step they make when finding the solution, how to set up the problem, how to solve it, and explain why they are able to do each step (postulates, theorems, properties, facts, etc.). Students are provided with sentence starters to help them determine how to write explanations.
