Integrating Mathematics with Writing
Tong, Jo Ann
NADE Digest, v4 n2 p9-18 Spr 2009
Since the learner is actively engaged when composing writing assignments, integrating math through various writing modes can enhance and strengthen students' understanding of math concepts. Two expository writing assignments, an acrostic poem and a vocabulary activity, are demonstrated. Writing can have a positive effect on learning as students synthesize, analyze and evaluate course content in an organized schema. Assigning writing activities to mathematics students will encourage them to read their math textbook and other material such as math websites on the Internet in greater depth.
