Communicating in Numbers and Words

Communicating in Numbers and Words

The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) has compiled a collection of mathematics resources related to various subjects and disciplines. �Math Across the Community College Curriculum� is the title of the collection, which includes great math resources and applications for educators and students alike. Carolyn Calhoon-Dillahunt and Tarik Lagnaoui of Yakima Valley Community College created this particular resource. In it they combine principles from mathematics and English to enhance students� ability to communicate effectively. The �Overview� and �Syllabus� provide detailed information about the course, as well as goals and learning objectives for students. Check out the �Assignment� section or �Portfolio Instructions� for ideas on how to incorporate these lessons into your own classroom. The assignments provide practical examples and experience, which helps students understand the underlying principles of communication in the exercise.
