This article will describe a writing assignment designed for use in a liberal arts college whose mission stresses effective written communication both within and across disciplines. In this assignment, students write three separate solutions to the same mathematics problem: one for a mathematical peer, a second for a contemporary that does not necessarily have the mathematical background of the writer, and a third that can be understood by a general reader of the local newspaper. This paper will outline the framework of the assignment, provide examples of student work, detail assessment strategies, and give samples of student feedback.
