Learning Log for Review of pages 68-71 and 79 in Chapter 3

After reviewing pages 68-71 and page 79, I understood writing within math better than before. One thing that I learned was how writing within math, there is more than just writing words and sentences. Furthermore, writing within math, we need to use symbols and numbers. When we do use words and sentences, we use them when answering things such as "open-ended response questions, which may resemble multiple-part word problems" (68). A thing that stood out to me within Amanda Cavicchioni's story was how she had students teach other math in order to check on their understanding. A project like this, the idea of having students pick a subject and teach it to one another, would work across different content areas. Furthermore, students would then feel a sense of independence or feel like they have a say in their learning.
