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, proofwriting strategies, and proof elegance. Learn how to plan for math lab classes, the Moore method, inquirybased 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.
