Mathematical Communication is a developing collection of resources for engaging students in writing and speaking about mathematics, whether for the purpose of learning mathematics or of learning to communicate as mathematicians.

Sample coded comments

Educators who find themselves writing the same comments on multiple students’ papers may find it to be helpful to use comment codes to simplify giving feedback and to de-emphasize less important comments so more important comments will receive more attention from students. This two-page pdf presents an example of such coded comments from a course on Micro/Nano Processing Technology. Some students also appreciate having the code list to use as an editing checklist.
