@cybraryman1 When I briefly taught math I had the students keep their own Math
(Maths) Glossary that they illustrated themselves. #mathchat

Friday, 20th May 2011 What does or should a student maths journal look like?
@simplyquadratic #mathchat I have never had students keep a math journal but I would
want there to be examples of probl solving, analysis, conjectures proofs

Fri May 20 00:17:33 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71368928714162176 - #15

@ParrisFund #mathchat definitely think it should show that they're understanding the
concept of what's being taught, opposed 2 just memorizing things

@Mstew15 @simplyquadratic same here. I call it their notebooks, and divide a three
subject into glossary, work, & examples sections #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @ParrisFund So you see journals as a way of focusing more on the


process or 'framing' the concepts? #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @Mstew15 @simplyquadratic Is putting things in notebooks the same


as keeping a journal, or is it just a written record of work? #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @mathonthemind Hi, glad you could join us. The topic is "What does or

@mathonthemind We have been using a math journal this year at our school. We are a
1-1
1 laptop school and use an online program for #math. #mathchat

Friday, 20th May 2011 What does or should a student maths journal look like?
@cybraryman1 I think students having maths journals will help them with the concepts
that they are learning #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:23:25 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71370407990665216 - #25

@Mstew15 #mathchat def different. Just not sure how I would use it myself.
@ColinTGraham
Fri May 20 00:23:37 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71370458230042624 - #26

@mathonthemind Our journals have had the lesson title at the top of the page, and a line
down the middle of the page. Notes left, examples right. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:24:17 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71370626291601408 - #27

@ColinTGraham @Mstew15 That's part of the problem, I think. Most of us probably never
consider that having a journal just for maths would work. #mathchat

@mathonthemind I think next year the journal should have a problem given. The students
write the problem at the top, solve it, then explain #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:25:08 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71370838640832512 - #29

@ColinTGraham @mathonthemind How does this differ from note-taking,


note if it
does?#mathchat
Fri May 20 00:25:25 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71370909176446976 - #30

@mathonthemind I feel they should be able to solve the problem as well as explain how
they solved in words. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:25:43 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71370985969950720 - #31

@simplyquadratic #mathchat I guess problem solving is most important since it is an


area my students struggle with. I want them to record their process
Fri May 20 00:26:00 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371054341300224 - #33

@cybraryman1 Couldn't they do the journal as a blog too? #mathchat


Fri May 20 00:26:12 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371108275855360 - #34

@mathonthemind I think with note taking, it is very important, but we should be allowing
them to try and work the
e problem in their own way. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:26:28 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371173249818624 - #35

@ColinTGraham @mathonthemind So does being able to explain carry the same weight
as the solving then? #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:26:38 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371215876521984 - #36

@mathonthemind @cybraryman1 I think the problem with blog their work is that it is
difficult to show equations in typing. Students would struggle #mathchat

Friday, 20th May 2011 What does or should a student maths journal look like?
@ParrisFund @ColinTGraham Framing the concepts and also a space for them to record
notes from each lesson #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:27:41 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371481204002816 - #38

@ColinTGraham @simplyquadratic Does the recording the process need to be in writing,


or would a blended form, such as video, audio etc. work too #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:27:56 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371542885449729 - #39

@mathonthemind However, sharing how they solved problems and explaining in words
would be great to share in blogs #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:27:57 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371548061204481 - #40

@Mstew15 #mathchat all that you are all saying goes in my regular notes...two
notes...tw column
notes, pictures to clarify, examples...what's a journal for??
Fri May 20 00:28:08 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371595112910848 - #41

@cybraryman1 @mathonthemind Good point. Yes it would be hard to show the


equations. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:28:38 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371719524356098 - #42

@goralkai @cybraryman1 Would you let them use the math journal on the
test?#mathchat
Fri May 20 00:28:46 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371752231550976 - #44

@mathonthemind @colintgraham I think being able to explain is more important than


solving. Students should share their different ways to solve. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:28:56 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371792442343424 - #45

@ColinTGraham @ParrisFund So relating their own thinking to a classroom experience


and keeping the two close together in the record... #mathchat

@mathonthemind @mstew15 The journal would be the students sharing HOW they
solved the problem. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:29:34 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71371955932102656 - #47

@mathonthemind The difficulties with #math is that there are more than one way to solve
problems. Students need to explore those other concepts. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:30:13 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71372115416326144 - #48

@mathonthemind A #math journal would be a great way for them to share how they
solve problems differently. #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:30:36 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71372213512712192 - #49

@ColinTGraham @Mstew15 Well, that is a good question. What is a journal for? Why do
some people keep diaries or journals of what they do daily? #mathchat

@simplyquadratic #mathchat @cybraryman1 I would say yes. Can anyone share a link
related to this?
Fri May 20 00:30:49 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71372268416151553 - #51

@mathonthemind Students also would be able to see how their work has changed and
their thoughts of how difficult or easy a problem was. #mathchat

@mathonthemind It's the same as #english class having a journal to keep their thoughts.

finding out how equations etc are written online... help peers #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:33:04 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71372836597547008 - #57

@ColinTGraham @mathonthemind @mstew15 The issue of sharing is tricky... is a


journal personal and private, or is it public, or is it a mixture? #mathchat
Fri May 20 00:34:18 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71373145952632832 - #59

@mathonthemind So would we #grade the #math #journal? #mathchat


Fri May 20 00:34:34 +0000 2011 - tweet id 71373211979354112 - #60

@mathonthemind @colintgraham I think the journal needs to be semi private between


student and teacher. However, the student can share with peers. #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @mathonthemind Is the "getting inside their heads" between the

@mathonthemind Also, with the #MathWall,, students could come in before or after
school and read it. Probably having discussions over it as well. #mathchat

@Waukeestudent @ColinTGraham you would get some junk writing because they would
see it as useless. #mathchat

@mathonthemind @colintgraham I think having students reflect and write helps build the
understanding. However, daily mand. writing will get old. #mathchat

@mathonthemind When students are asked to reflect constantly, they become robots or
bored with the concept of reflections. #mathchat

Friday, 20th May 2011 What does or should a student maths journal look like?
@ColinTGraham @ezka29 If teachers found it "onerous for time", do you think this was
because they didn't understand what journalling was about? #mathchat

@Waukeestudent @mathonthemind put up a daily question or problem and they can


solve it as a "bell ringer" activity. #mathchat

@mathonthemind A #MathWall would also allow students to go up, mark out/erase their
previous thoughts and change them. #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @Waukeestudent Is revisiting the junk writing and redrafting valuable?


What would make 'imposed' writing
riting seem more useful? #mathchat

@mathonthemind Students don't go back through journals to reread what they wrote,
seeing it on a wall they might change or + to their thoughts #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @mathonthemind Ah reflect! There's a good mathematical word!


Reflection is, I think, one of the great strengths of journals. #mathchat
