There's a few reasons you show your notes in math, one is to elucidate how you arrived at your solution, which would make it easier to figure out whether it's correct and which mistakes you may have made if it isn't.  Another is to see that you actually did the work.  You should know that seeing your own work is essential to performing it.  I'm not a mathematician, but I do understand the principle of showing your work.
