Writing to Enhance Understanding in General Education Mathematics Courses
PRIMUS Volume 24, Number 7, ISSN 1051-1970
We consider a variety of writing assignments used for two general education mathematics courses. The student writing ranges from brief informal pieces to more formal assignments that address the full scope of a course, with an emphasis on encouraging students to have a richer experience of mathematical people and ideas and of their own learning. The assignments incorporate multiple media, including novels and films, and are spread throughout a course so that students have frequent and regular exposure to writing.
