Topic Teaching Tip(s): Including writing in math classes | Giving a writing lecture or workshop
This lesson plan and handout are for an 80-minute workshop to prepare students to write their term papers. During the workshop, an instructor provides guidance for choosing an appropriate focus for the paper (counterexample: "Everything I know about the Island of Corsica"); students talk with classmates to focus their topics; and the class discusses rhetorical differences among papers, presentations, and psets; the writing in two versions of the same paragraph; the structure of a paper; LaTeX; and acknowledging sources. From Mia Minnes' Undergraduate Seminar in Logic.
