        Writing in Mathematics

        This resource group includes two videos focused on a ninth grade algebra teacher's efforts to use writing to help students understand mathematics. The first video focuses on directing students’ writing through modeling and the second video on allowing them to work independently and use self-talk to find a productive solution.
