Math Interactive Student Notebook A Key Element to Success in Math Class with Ms. Knapp This is a modified PowerPoint of a PowerPoint originally shared by Melinda Gannon.
What is an Interactive Notebook? A personalized, clear textbook A working portfolio -- all of your notes, classwork, etc. -- in one convenient spot
Left Side – Right Side Orientation L EFT SIDE Left side items are items from the teacher and text to be... LEARNED R IGHT SIDE Right side items are the student’s... REFLECTIONS
Left Side Left is for learnable content! The left side “belongs” to Ms. Knapp and the text. The left side has “testable” information.
Examples of Teacher Left Side Content Notes, usually in the Cornell note- taking format Handouts Graphic organizers Example problems worked out with written “running” commentary Content to go on a math foldable
Right Side The right is for “reflection.” The right side belongs to YOU! The right side is where you record your PROCESSING of the teacher- provided notes, handouts, etc. (i.e. of the left side items).
Examples of Student Right Side Work/Products Guided practice Graphic organizers Foldables Your re-writing of notes into your own language and/or with illustrations
More Examples of Right Side Work/Products Math journal entries (e.g. about real- world math, about the assigned Internet math practice homework) Creative math memory hooks Mental math models (e.g. a story about “good guys leaving” and “bad guys leaving” to explain pos/neg integer multiplication)
Extra Credit Right Side Work/Products NOTE: These are graded by detailed rubrics. 1.math riddles (especially for geometry) 2.student-created math games requiring math expertise (both to create and play the game; can involve dice, spinners, etc.) 3.poems/raps to aid memory of concepts or algorithms 4.etc.
