Puzzle It Out!
Writing a Math Argument
Practice, practice, practice explaining clear math reasoning so you can show other people how you found your solution!
Why is this important? Many people use math in
their jobs. For example, an actuary uses complicated
math to help businesses make decisions, so they
have to be able to clearly explain their calculations
to people who aren’t math experts.
