A few years ago the head of our Math dept was toying with the idea of
offering a course in writing for math majors, so I did some research on
courses. Some of these sources might be useful to you--or just try a
google search on writing and mathematics
University of Minnesota Center for Writing offers courses in writing in
math, under the heading of "teaching with writing"
"A Guide to Writing in Mathematics Classes"
" AGuide to Writing Mathematics"
Westfield State College site of Writing in Mathematics
