A Math-Based Writing System for Engineers: Sentence Algebra & Document Algorithms
This professional title debuts a novel new system for teaching engineers how to be effective workplace writers in industry. Geared toward math-based thinkers and problem solvers, the system incorporates algebraic equations and variables to teach applied grammar and sentence-level editing techniques, and algorithmic flowcharts in its lessons on essential document structures--such as proposals, status emails, and project reports. Because the method uses math as a universal touchstone, this book is well-suited for both native and multilingual engineers who use English as a key business language.
