But it’s maths not English!”

The writing demands in mathematics are often underestimated. Communicating mathematical ideas, results, reasoning and conclusions requires more than symbolic notation, it requires precise and correct written expression.

This concise booklet outlines the nature of mathematical writing: its common forms (such as classifying, comparing, explaining, extrapolating, interpreting, justifying), correct report construction, and conventions for showing mathematical working. It includes a glossary, sentence starters, connectives, lists of useful mathematical language and many, many examples of sound mathematical writing. Your students will thank you.

For parents, teachers and students.
