This book is designed to provide educators with strategies for teaching students to express their mathematical thinking effectively—orally, with the use of representations, and in writing. One of the math books I enjoy reading in most is Neukirch's book "Algebraic Number Theory". In my opinion, he presents the material beautifully and with a good degree of generality for a text book. Also, he manages to use language beautifully without losing mathematical .
