# Teaching Students to Write Mathematics III

First anniversary of the blog! Celebrations later – time for the last video on the DVD I think. The final talk of our teaching students to write mathematics day was given by Mike Robinson. He was mostly telling us about the course he has been teaching for a few years so is full of practical advice on how to run such a course.
