Families Ask: Showing Your Work: Beyond Following Steps

Jennifer Bay-Williams 

February 2007, Volume 12, Issue 6, Page 338

Abstract:

Describes the difference between "show your work" and "explain how you solved it". The family take-home page provides examples and rationale for both showing work and showing thinking.

The purpose for Families Ask is to keep families updated on contemporary topics in the classroom and give them ideas of how to best support their children's mathematical development at home. Families Ask is a regular department of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School.
