Math research and writing is a great way to get your students actively and authentically involved in doing mathematics. Help them create a short math research paper by suggesting good problems to start with, and work with them to extend and expand those problems until they’ve got enough material to write about.
Above all, help them make the problems, and the paper, their own! Click here see some basic outlines that will give you a sense of how to structure student research.
Also, please consider volunteering to be a judge in this year’s competition. Judging is a great way to see what other students, and teachers, are doing! Click here to sign up to be a judge, or contact us for more information.
