Math Anchor Charts

Math anchor charts can provide a source of visual reference to support student thinking, reasoning and problem solving.  A good classroom math anchor chart:

  • has a single focus
  • reflects recent math lessons needing continued support and scaffolding
  • helps students remember the process of a skill or strategy
  • supports the development of precise math language
  • is organized and accurate

Take a moment to reflect on the math anchor charts in your classroom.  Which ones do your students use the most? Which ones could you remove without them even noticing?
