Cactus: Writing an Article
Hyde, Hartley; Spencer, Toby
Australian Mathematics Teacher, v66 n1 p14-15 2010
Some people became mathematics or science teachers by default. There was once such a limited range of subjects that students who could not write essays did mathematics and science. Computers changed that. Word processor software helped some people overcome huge spelling and grammar hurdles and made it easy to edit and manipulate text. Would-be writers need confidence and a realistic self-awareness. Teachers who can survive today's classrooms and educational institutions have already proved the multiplicity of their talents. In this article, the authors seek to persuade readers that they have much to offer as a writer--and to encourage them to submit articles (long or short) to journals for publication. Writing is a good form of professional development and self-reflection. This article describes and provides tips on how to set about writing an article for a journal.
