Course Lead MM255

School or Organization Name:    Purdue University Global

Co-Presenter Name(s):

Area of the World from Which You Will Present:  Greencastle, PA  U.S. A.

Language in Which You Will Present:  English

Target Audience(s): Faculty Members of Higher Education and Students

Short Session Description (one line): An important part of any mathematics program is teaching students to write well. 

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.

Dear Candy,

Thank you very much for your conference proposal submission. Every proposal needs to relate to some aspect of our global mission. The Global Education Conference is not solely focused on general education topics.

Please review our mission: and then revise your proposal. Let me know when your proposal is ready for me to review again, and I'll take a look!

Lucy Gray

Conference Co-Chair
