Defining Communication
  The Communication Standard | Using Effective Questioning | Using Precise Language | Additional Methods | Goals | Your Journal


Consider the standard, the material in this section and the examples you have worked through earlier in the course. Reflect on how you can support reasoning and proof in your own classroom. Choose one of the questions to answer in your journal.

Questions to write and reflect about:
  • For most of us, group work, writing about mathematics, or making classroom presentations is a very different experience from our experiences as mathematics students in high school or college. Is this true for you? What role does this past experience play in how you view communication in your classroom today?
  • As you think about communication in your own classroom, what do you feel is successful? What would you like to do differently? How might you go about that? What are the obstacles? How will you overcome them?
Three ways to write and reflect:
  • Use pen and paper.
  • Use a word processor.
  • Use the form below.
Be sure to save what you have written before you navigate out of the journal section.


Your work will be displayed in a printer-friendly format to enable you to print.

Thanks for writing in your journal. Please keep your entries in whatever format you choose -- you will find them useful for reference later.
