- How to Read Mathematics: Simonson and Gouvea discuss the differences that arise when reading math and suggestions for how to handle math. They also provide a long example illustrating their ideas (mileage may vary with this).
- Reading Mathematics:
An excerpt from Hubbard and Hubbard's
*Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Differential Forms: A Unified Approach*. They have some great suggestions about reading proofs and learning notation. - Helping Undergraduates Learning to Read Mathematics: Reiter's article contains a long list of questions that might help when reading through theorems and definitions. It was intended for abstract algebra students but the questions are generally useful.

- Some Guidelines for Good Mathematical Writing: Su has some wonderful suggestions and outlines some traditions of writing math (e.g., using "we" instead of "I").
- Evaluating Proofs: This writing rubric from Eastern Oregon University summarizes some ideas
of what makes a proof good. This is
*not*how proofs will be graded in this course but these qualities will be considered.
