Math Close Reading Strategy

Below is the text copy for the close reading strategy for mathematics.

Write and Maintain Your Math Journal
Everyday you should answer the following six questions:
Date: 9/28
What are you learning today ?
Why am I learning this ?
How are you going to learn it ?
How will you know that you got it?
We’re can you get help if you don’t get it?
What evidence do you have that you learned something today ?
Here are some nonexamples of completing a math journal entry on a daily basis:
Example #1 NonExample
Use models to subtract integers
Key terms:
Subtraction:the process or skill of taking one number or amount away from another
Integers:whole numbers
Key concepts:
Arithmetic: algebra:
25=2+(5)=3 ab=a+(b)
2(5)=2+5=7 a(b)=a+b
Key terms:associative property of multiplication states that you can add or multiply regardless of how the numbers are grouped
identity property states that any time you multiply a number by 1, the result, or product, is that original number
inequality :the relation between two expressions that are not equal, employing a sign such as ≠ “not equal to,” > “greater than,” or < “less than.”.
solution of the inequality:a number which when substituted for the variable makes the inequality a true statement.
This copy and paste does not help and support your learning of mathematics because it lacks a connection to "Why"
Example #2  NonExample
Rules Of Divisibility
2 0, 2, 4, 6, 8
3 Add my digits 1053
4 My last 2 digits
13, 456, 234, 012
5 0, 5
6 if 2 and 3 so can I.
9 Add my digits
10 0
Example #3  A Good Example
Date: 9/26/17
Uce prime factoring to find geometric means.
Example#2  A Great Example
Date: 4918
What are you learning today? Today I am learning about converting recursive and explicit forms of geometric sequences.
Why am I learning this? I am learning this so I can better understand this subject.
How are you going to learn it?I am going to learn it by watching the videos given.
How will you know that you got it? I will know that I got it if I can do a problem on my own.
Where can you go if you don't get it? I can go to google, someone around me, or the teacher.
What evidence do you have that you got it? My evidence is that I got a sign off.
