"In today’s educational environment, there is a tremendous push to incorporate writing in all content areas, including mathematics. This book does an excellent job of presenting unique ideas and techniques to help teachers develop students’ writing skills within a mathematics classroom. The authors present these ideas in such a way that they become a part of the mathematics instruction."
"The strategies in Write for Mathematics helped my math students to not only write about mathematics but also to think about mathematics."
"The integration of writing and mathematics is powerful instruction. This book provides ready-to-use strategies that will result in effective math instruction, and more important, students will enjoy math class again. This is an outstanding resource."
"The blend of writing examples and emphasis on thought ensures that students receive an excellent link between concept and written word."
It isn't research-based enough for dissertation students. It's more pedagogical.
