Writing in My Calculus Classroom: An Evolution.
Artino, Carmen Q.
Since the advent of reform in mathematics education, writing in mathematics courses has taken on an increasingly important role. This paper discusses what one teacher has done over time to incorporate writing into calculus classes and how the techniques employed have evolved over time. The focus is on journal writing, extended exercises, and lab-based exercises. Several recommendations are made to increase the effectiveness of writing exercises in mathematics classes. (DDR)
