Writing Math Research Papers serves both as a text for students and as a resource for instructors, administrators, and preservice teachers. It systematically describes how to write a research paper, from the prewriting work of problem solving and reading mathematics effectively to the postwriting work of making math research presentations and entering math contests.
The appendices include samples from student papers, information about math contests, and sources for finding research topics. Appendix C: A Guide for Instructors and Administrators gives practical suggestions for implementing a math research program as a separate course or within existing math courses.
