Writing and speaking are fundamental activities of mathematical

scientists. They write research papers, expository articles, notes, emails; they give talks, lectures, and work with colleagues. In today's globalized society, much of that writing and speaking is done in English, and it is therefore vital for graduate students in mathematics and related disciplines to be able to write and speak well in English. This is true for students who will work in academia as well as those who

aim for industry.

In this course, students will learn about mathematical writing and speaking. It is intended for graduate students and in mathematics and related disciplines who already have a good basic competence with writing and speaking English. Some advanced undergraduates may also find this course

useful.

Topics will include: writing proofs, structuring papers, particulars of grammar and English usage for mathematics; voice usage in presentations and lectures, best practices for slides, chalkboard usage, and more! (Or perhaps less, if we run out of time.)
