Teaching Students to Write Mathematics

Teaching students to write mathematics correctly is often neglected part of a mathematics degree (and earlier education). As part of my mission to change this I hosted a workshop here at Leeds which was co-organized with Peter Rowlett. We had three talks: an introduction by me, Franco Vivaldi's thoughts and a description of the course he has been running for over a decade and Mike Robinson's talk on his recent work.

The talks were recorded and are available on DVD.
