After rereading writing within math, I got a better understanding of why math is one of the hardest to include writing in. Math is created by symbols and representations. I learned that by including writing within math, it deepend more of a conceptual understanding instead of memorizing how to do a problem. Having a prewriting activity assists students think through the process of the problem. Some questions that can be asked are,
-What do you notice?
-What makes sense?
-What is confusing?
Some tips I learned that we can incorporate literacy into math is using a word wall that can be used to help with vocabulary. Another example is using a math problem just as how we would to a story by identifying main characters and main ideas.
