Many students experience math as only a set of rules and procedures that are memorized and repeated on tests, then soon forgotten. Writing in math journals allows students to see that doing math is more than just getting the right answer. The use of daily journals, learning logs, and math stories can help students to think through math reasoning in their own words.
