Quote from: Maggie Johnston, 9th Grade Math Teacher, Denver, CO
“Writing in mathematics gives me a window into my students’ thoughts that I don’t normally get when they just compute problems. It shows me their roadblocks, and also gives me as a teacher, a road map.”
A Potential Transformative Model of the Math Classroom
Math Classroom functions as a community where thinking, talking, agreeing and disagreeing are encouraged. The teacher provides students with powerful math problems to solve together and students are expected to justify and explain their solutions. The primary goal is to extend one’s own thinking as well as that of others.
