"Writing is thinking on paper, or talking to someone on paper." - William Zinsser

Writing in the mathematics classroom is no different than any other objective writing. Writing in mathematics allows the teacher to peek into the writer’s mind as the writer attempts to communicate her mathematical reasoning. In fact, the perceptive teacher can witness Common Core Standards for Mathematics and Math Standards for Practices (MSP) in the students’ writing. The opportunities for advancing students’ mathematical thinking, reasoning, and discourse through writing are considerable. 

In this master class, we'll explore opportunities for advancing students’ mathematical thinking, reasoning, and discourse through writing. You'll learn how to use writing to support students in mastering the images, concepts, facts, language, and procedures and skills of a specific mathematical domain to a specified level of competence, a threshold of intuition is reached and then, as one contemplates a problem or event or as one maintains a dialogue with someone else, spontaneous cognition readily occurs.
