## Examples of good mathematical writing

The Mathematical Association of America awards several prizes for mathematical writing.

In particular, the articles awarded the Mathematical Association of America's Chauvenet Prize, Allendoerfer Award or Halmos-Ford Award are particularly worth reading.

Many other papers in the American Mathematical Monthly, College Mathematics Journal, or Mathematical Intelligencer (available via UMass library) are interesting and accessible to mathematics undergraduates.

At a higher mathematical level, the winners of the American Mathematical Society's Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition have produced some excellent work.

The magazine Quanta from the Simons Foundation has many very good articles on mathematical (and other) topics, with a bias toward recent research. It also has good biographical articles, for example of the Fields' Medalists.

The book Mathematics Form and Function by Saunders Maclane (UMass library) is an excellent overview of mathematics at an advanced undergraduate level.
