MAA CP A1 Getting Students To Discuss
and To Write About Mathematics Sarah L. Mabrouk, Session I - Session II - Session III - |
This session invites papers about
assignments and projects that require students to communicate mathematics
through in-class oral presentations, in-class discussions that they must lead
and motivate, and written assignments and/or papers. These assignments/projects
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. Presenters are encouraged to discuss how the use of the
assignment/project helps the student to gain greater understanding of
mathematics as well as to improve his/her understanding of mathematics language
and his/her ability to communicate mathematics. Of particular interest is the
effect of such projects/assignments/presentations throughout the course on the
student's understanding of mathematics, his/her communication of mathematics,
and his/her attitude toward mathematics.
