Annotated Bibliography: Mathematical Literacy

What is an Annotated Bibliography?

Our class was provided ten peer-reviewed journal articles discussing various techniques about math and student literacy. The following document provides the sources for the articles and my commentary about each article. Each commentary is divided into three paragraphs. Paragraph one summarizes the article. Paragraph two assess the utility in my classroom, ratings are on a scale of 1 (I could use this tomorrow) to 3 (this research will not affect my teaching) and commentary is added to discuss reasoning. Paragraph three is a reflection on the application within the classroom or reasons why the research is not useful.
