Publication Title

Mathematical Themes in a First-Year Seminar

Abstract

I discuss my experience at Dickinson College teaching a first-year seminar investigating the portrayals of mathematicians in popular culture. I focus on how I combined the content of this topic with writing instruction and writing assignments to address the college-level learning goals of student development of critical analysis, writing, and information literacy skills.
