Great description of math journaling in one classroom.  Each two-page entry has the learning objective, that objective reworded by the student, what they knew beforehand, what they learned, their proof that it is so, a reflection of their choice, and a "foldable" interactive example.  She even brings in left and right brain thinking by having the words and proof on the left side and the art and color on the right.  :o)  I definitely need to check out her other posts soon!

When it comes to my Transformations unit in Geometry, I have a mini-project that I like to use.   First, I show different company logos in class and we talk about the different transformations we see
