Writing Mathematics-A Nut and a Bolt of StyleMathematics and Computer Science
PublisherMathematical Association of America (MAA)
AbstractAs editor of Mathematics Magazine, I see a lot of manuscripts. Some of them are written with a charming sense of style, but many of them leave me thinking that the author's only concern was to set out the mathematics clearly. This is a fine place to start, but the tradition of the Magazine is to offer things that people will enjoy reading, and this requires more than clarity. Let me explain an important step authors can take in order to make their work more attractive.
