Math Interactive Student Notebook (MISN) A Key Element to Success in Math Class with Ms. Washington 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 the students… REFLECTIONS …output R IGHT SIDE Right side items are things from the teacher and text to be learned… TESTABLE ITEMS …input
Right Side Right is for Cornell Notes! The right side “belongs” to Mrs. Washington and the text. The right side has “testable” information. The right side has a toolbox with vocabulary, formulas. The right side has a summary for the day.
Examples of Teacher Right Side Content Notes, usually in the Cornell note- taking format (formulas, vocabulary) Handouts Graphic organizers Example problems worked out with written “running” commentary Content to go on a math foldable
Left Side The left is for “Your Way” of understanding the material. The left side belongs to YOU! The left side is where you record your PROCESSING of the teacher- provided notes, handouts, etc. (i.e. of the right side items).
Examples of Student Left Side Work/Products Songs, Poems, Raps Graphic organizers Foldables Your re-writing of notes into your own language and/or with illustrations Math Graffiti/ Math Cartoons Colorful and varied representations
More Examples of Left 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 Left Side Work/Products 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
sample re-write of class notes into left side MISN format... in your own language! source: http://ideasite.net/math /

Maintaining the Interactive Notebook Date and number each page (1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, etc.). No doodling that doesn’t relate to notes No ripped out pages or torn corners
Components of your Interactive Notebook Cover – create colorful cover that has to do with math concepts Table of Contents – create running table that includes skills
Test Your MISN Knowledge Can you mentally fill in the blanks below and mentally “circle” the correct words? The left side is for _____________. It is for input/output. (circle one) from the _________. The right side is for _______ _____. It is for input/output. (circle one) from the _________.
