Facilitating Student Learning through Math Journals.
Koirala, Hari P.
In the last two decades, mathematics teachers have shown a great deal of interest in how students learn mathematics through journal writing. I have also used journals in mathematics classes for the last five years. Based on the analysis of more than 1800 journal entries written by approximately 200 students in the last five years, I conclude that journal writing has potential to aid in student mathematical learning even though teachers need a large amount of time to examine student journals and provide feedback. Math journals not only help instructors in understanding students' feelings, likes, and dislikes about classes but also help students to demonstrate their mathematical thinking processes and understanding.
