  1. Mathematical Communication - Mathematical Association of America
    Resources for engaging undergraduate students in writing and speaking about mathematics, whether for the purpose of learning mathematics or of learning to communicate as mathematicians. General principles of mathematical communication range from research on communication and its pedagogy, to precision and rigor; and from notation to types of proof, proof-writing strategies, and proof elegance. Learn how to plan for math lab classes, the Moore method, inquiry-based learning, and other courses; find model assignments on delivering presentations and on writing, examples of good math writing and good math presentations, and tips for revising writing, facilitating peer critique, engaging the audience, listening to mathematics, and providing feedback. See, in particular, suggestions in response to the question, "How can I objectively grade something as subjective as communication?" Originally a project of the M.I.T. Department of Mathematics, Mathematical Communication received an NSDL grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to make the site public, and is now hosted by the Mathematical Association of America as part of MathDL. more>>

  2. A Short Guide to Writing Mathematics - Stephen B. Maurer; Dept. of Mathematics & Statistics, Swarthmore College
    A guide to mathematics writing for college students who want to learn mathematical style - math majors or prospective majors, or students who will go into other quantitative fields and expect to communicate with mathematics in their careers. You may contact the author to download the book; in addition, Advice on Note Taking, and Common Word Errors in Writing Mathematics (examples of ways students misuse key mathematical words like "equation") are online, together with the Table of Contents down to the subsubsection level (in plain text format). more>>

  3. Writing in Mathematics - Dr. Annalisa Crannell; Franklin & Marshall College
    Dr. Crannell's Guide to Writing in Mathematics, the checklist she uses, and writing assignments from her Pre-Calculus and Calculus I, II, and III classes. Contents include: Why Should You Have To Write Papers In A Math Class?; How is Mathematical Writing Different?; Following the Checklist; Good Phrases to Use in Math Papers; Helpful Hints for the Computer; and Other Sources of Help. more>>
