Writing in Mathematics Classes. What Research Says to the Science and Mathematics Teacher. Number 9.
Miller, L. Diane
This publication describes how writing in mathematics classes in Australia can be beneficial to students and their teachers, including: journal writing, expository writing, and transactional writing. In addition, it reports the results of a study that examined benefits derived by five secondary school mathematics teachers from reading their students' responses to timed, in-class, impromptu writing assignments. The bulletin presents suggestions for getting started for teachers who decide to implement writing activities in their classrooms. Contains 15 references. (MKR)
