Students may use class notes, course workbooks and textbooks, quizzes and tests as resources for the sample work to be included in the portfolio.

Math typically deals with numbers. This portfolio will provide the opportunity for students to use their writing skills to help others understand the concepts they have learned in their math course.

Students will take the topics covered and examples of the concepts and using their writing skills, the student will write out the processes (steps) used to solve problems.
