Learning and Assessing Mathematics through Reading and Writing
Bosse, Michael J.; Faulconer, Johna
School Science and Mathematics, v108 n1 p8 Jan 2008
Students learn mathematics more effectively and more deeply when reading and writing is directed at learning mathematics. Although reading and writing in mathematics may necessitate more skills and practice to master, the mathematical learning derived from reading and writing mathematics far outweighs the burden it places on teachers and students. This paper explores the vital role of purposeful reading and writing in the mathematics classroom and outlines some techniques to promote successful integration of reading and writing in mathematics.
