Speaker: Dr. Lowell Abrams, The George Washington University.
Absytract: Learning to write mathematics well goes beyond just the “first introduction to writing proofs” course that introduces the basic types of proofs and basic vocabulary of mathematics. This talk will cover five super-important rhetorical components of proofs which I refer to as “template, strategy, tool, insight, and method.” I will illustrate these rhetorical components with an example taken from a current research project I am working on with Daniel Slilaty of Wright State University.
All TU students and faculty are welcome to attend, so please feel free to invite anyone you like.
