A Mathematician Learns the Basics of Writing Instruction: An Immersion Experience with Long-Term Benefits
Doty, Lynne L.
PRIMUS, v22 n1 p14-29 2012
Initially designed to be an interdisciplinary experiment that would change attitudes about mathematics, the semester-long collaboration between a writing instructor and a mathematics instructor yielded unexpected long-term results. The collaboration served as an immersion in methods and techniques used by writing instructors. Description of jointly supervised assignments demonstrates how this experience enhanced a mathematician's ability to use formal writing assignments in other mathematics classes.
