Teaching and Testing Mathematics Reading

Carl C. Cowen

Amer. Math. Monthly 98(1991)50-53

A goal that should be a conscious part of our teaching effort: we should teach our students to read and understand mathematics. And to reinforce our effort, we must test their ability to do so. This paper advocates this point of view. It presents some in-class activities that can be used as practice and some test question ideas that can be used to follow up on their learning.
