David Dickerson and John Suarez

David Dickerson, Mathematics Department, and John Suarez, Institute for Civic Engagement, had their article, “The imperative of definition,” accepted for the September 2018 issue of MathAMATYC Educator Journal.  

Dickerson and Suarez explore the kinds and uses of definitions in natural language, compare and contrast these with the kinds and uses of definitions in mathematics, then suggest a revised language and a vocabulary reserved specifically for definitions in mathematics classrooms.
