Project Status
The project is about students' writing in mathematics. The goal is to develop a teaching model that can be used to develop students' writing. This is done using two main tools. The first is a separation in time and space between a lesson that deals with problem solving and discussions about the method to solve the problem and a lesson that deals with discussions about the students' written accounts based on the question of what is good written communication in mathematics. The second tool is a framework that describes different aspects of quality in written mathematical communication. The framework should help teachers and students distinguish different parts of writing so that they can discuss them.
