For this tool, my objective is to have the students share how they or their family use math in their every day lives. I have actually used this prompt as my TELPAS prompt every year, but there is a website "iearn collaborative centre" where they mention it also
Using google docs, I would have the students write an essay based on how their families use math. I would implement at the beginning of the year within the first several weeks, to ignite the idea that math is used everywhere by everyone, and to motivate the learner. Each student would write their essay, then each student would respond to one other student's problem, by asking a question or commenting.
