Welcome to MathDL Mathematical Communication
MathDL Mathematical Communication is a developing collection of resources for engaging students in writing and speaking about mathematics, whether for the purpose of learning mathematics or of learning to communicate as mathematicians.
This site addresses diverse aspects of mathematical communication, including
- writing as mathematicians
- giving effective math presentations
- talking about math to better understand it
- writing about math to better understand it
- communicating effectively with teammates working on a math project
Here is a brief summary of suggestions to consider as you design a mathematics class that includes communication.
This site originated at M.I.T. so most of the current content is for teaching upper-level undergraduates to communicate as mathematicians.
The site is now yours. Contribute materials! Suggest improvements!
