F1 Getting Students To Discuss And Write About Mathematics
Wednesday, January 7, 2004, 8:00 10:55 am and 2:15 6:15 pm Sarah L. Mabrouk, Framingham State University, Organizer 
This session invites papers about assignments and projects that
require students to communicate mathematics through inclass oral presentations
that they make or inclass discussions that they must lead and motivate and
through written assignments and/or papers.
These assignments can include analysis and applications of mathematics,
presentations of and analysis of proofs, presentations about famous
mathematicians and the mathematics that they studied, and assignments/projects
that utilize creative writing. Each
presenter is encouraged to discuss how the use of the assignment/project helped
students to improve their understanding of mathematics and their ability to
communicate mathematics. Of particular
interest is the effect of such projects/assignments/presentations throughout
the course on the students understanding of mathematics, their communication
of mathematics, and their attitude toward mathematics.
