In two weeks I am starting my creative math class I am teaching at my co-op. During my research I came across the idea of math journals. I really love the idea of math journals. Right now we are planning on doing teaching textbooks 3X per week and life of fred with math journals 2X per week. I just wanted to share in case anyone is looking to add something into their math curriculum. I think also life of fred mixed in with math journals are perfect for a more child led approach. We are also reading exploring the world of math. It covers a lot of math history. We will also be working on learning about mathematicians as well. Our first mmathematician will be Paul Erodos. There is a great book called the Boy Who Loved Math.

Here are sme links and pictures of our math journal. Feel free to share any math projects or ideas.

Just getting started but my kids love doing them. The only trouble with journals once my kids start it is hard to get them to stop. I love it though.
