We're told by teachers who know that many math folks will welcome the chance to examine this declaration of writing standards for written assignments in math. One teacher friend tells us: "As a math teacher who is often frustrated by the shoddy written work that I find in student notes or in handed-in assignments, I was very interested to read the benchmarks that someone took the time to think through. As always, our upfront work will pay off. Our students will be clearer about what exactly we want them to do. Equipped with that knowledge they might even meet our benchmarks!"
