Writing about math is an important component of the Common Core. Help your students practice explaining their problem solving strategies using these simple two-column journal pages. (Similar to a two-column in the text/about the text chart!) On one side, students solve a math problem. On the other side, students write about how they solved. A great way to let students show AND explain their thinking using precise math terms. Great way to compliment the Math Practices and a great way to prep students for mathematics assessments. These FIVE versions are extremely versatile and can be used with ANY kind of math problem!!! Great as a math center, as homework, group or independent practice, or even as a note-taking page to learn a new strategy while you model and explain! Enjoy!
I also included a math problem solving rubric that can be used to assess, self, or peer-assess students' work!
