Locate 2-3 primary source research articles related to your big idea. A primary research article is an article written by the researchers who describe their own study. Read your 2-3 articles and gather information about your big idea. Don’t simply list the information out but rather begin to synthesize your this information so that you can use this material for your final literature review assignment. Synthesis and focusing on the key details here is critical.
Write to answer your research question, using your big idea as a theme to answer your research question, with the literature as supporting evidence for that theme. Consider these questions as you write.
What ideas/ findings of the study help answer your research question and support your big idea?
How is the study important to helping you answer your research question?
How do the study participants compare from study to study?
How do the findings of each study compare and contrast with each other?
What are some of the strengths and weaknesses of these studies?

In the close review and examination of the literature it is evident that student-reflection does have a positive impact on student performance in the subject area of Mathematics. Mathematics is a subject area that is very challenging for many students, however when students get the opportunity to reflect on both content as well as the teaching and learning processes involved in Math Instruction they tend to demonstrate notable improvement in both accuracy and precision as it relates to Math performance and related competencies (Betne, 2011). Consequently, the study of student-reflection is of value. Odafe (2015) in his research on student reflection refers to the Student Reflection Process...
