# Writing Lessons

This overviews resources and techniques related to helping and motivating students to explore the history of mathematics. The range of resources is diverse: topics for writing assignments (essays to research papers), writing prompts, assessment rubrics, writing tips, the organization of a history of mathematics courses (e.g. syllabi, problem sets, exams), and techniques for integrating the history of mathematics into regular mathematics courses. All of the samples resources are from my own History of Mathematics course, though they often are adaptations of many other resources.
