Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Studies have shown that writing is valuable for the math classroom. A student’s ability to explain concepts in writing is related to the ability to comprehend and apply them. Writing supports mathematical reasoning and problem solving and helps students adopt the characteristics of effective communication by helping strengthen their thinking while requiring them to reflect on their work and clarify their thoughts about the ideas. Writing in mathematics give the instructor a window into the students’ thoughts that are normally not apparent when they are just asked to compute problems. It shows barriers giving instructors ways to help them understand.
