Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v12 n3 p287-93 Sep 1993
Discusses the use of writing to enhance learning in mathematics from a conceptual development perspective. Shuell's phases of learning are described as a general model for conceptual development and subsequently matched with Britton's categories for transactional-informative writing. Sample mathematics assignments for each writing category are provided. (Contains 21 references.) (MKR)
