PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you ask most students, they will tell you that they do not do much writing in their math class. This project will change that! Students should be writing in EVERY class. This is just one of the ways students could use writing in math.

This is a project in which students will be doing research and writing biographies about mathematicians. I had my students pick the name of a mathematician out of a hat. I tried to make sure each student in a class got a different mathematician.

I used this website to come up with names: http://fabpedigree.com/james/mathmen.htm

This document includes:
-instructions for the student
-questions about the mathematician for them to answer in their paper
-grading rubric
-FULLY EDITABLE so that you may adjust any guidelines as needed.
