Teachers want their students to not just learn mathematics but to understand the concepts they are working with in math problems. For teachers, creating this extended learning environment can be time consuming and difficult.

Now the Grade 5 Mathematics Journal Workbook, designed by the author of the widely used teaching resource, Balanced Mathematics, presents a mathematics journal writing program which takes students into the understanding of mathematics. The students work on problems related to all the major concepts of mathematics for Grade 5.

As the students work through each concept in the Journal Workbook, they go beyond solutions to explain their thinking behind the solutions. Thee also assess their efforts and rate the difficulties they faced in arriving at solutions and explanations.

With the Grade 5 Mathematics Journal Workbook teachers also have a highly accurate assessment tool for measuring student math achievement.
