Interactive Notebooks Ideas for Math

Next week I am presenting my research on Interactive Notebooks with Preservice Teaching at the School Science and Mathematics Association annual convention.  I have posted many ideas for interactive notebook use with science.  I wanted to write a post showing some ways interactive notebooks could be used in a math classroom.  

The ideas are basically the same.  Students explore math ideas and interact with real problems and concrete materials in a well planned, inquiry-based lesson that the teacher facilitates, and then the student displays their ideas, conclusions, and understandings in an interactive notebook.  Just like with the science notebook, the act of recording their ideas both visually and linguistically will help them remember the concepts.  

Here are some examples:

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
