Summary: This chapter contains examples of writing and speaking assignments in mathematics courses at all levels, from a firstyear seminar to a graduate course for teachers of mathematics. Courses in chaos theory, differential equations, history of mathematics, and mathematical modeling are illustrated as case studies for implementing writing and speaking assignments. These assignments are described, along with grading guides and reflections on the impact of these forms of assessment.
