Description

Developing communication skills in mathematics has become an important part of the school curriculum. Many standardized tests now require students to provide written explanations about how they solved various math problems. In Write About Math: The Test Connection, teachers and students are given all the tools they need to develop math writing skills. For teachers, there are strategies for engaging students in mathematical discussions, integrating the writing process with math activities, and assessing student work as well as instructional practices. For students, there are ample opportunities to solve math problems and to practice writing explanations about how the problems were solved. To communicate their solutions, students are asked to write letters to classmates, explain and justify their approaches, compare and contrast different problem-solving strategies, and persuade others that their answers are correct. In addition, students are provided with a scoring rubric so that they can assess their own work. Write About Math: The Test Connection is the perfect solution for teaching your students how to communicate and write about math so they will be prepared for any standardized test.
