Heading for All Types of Math Papers
First, put the heading in the
top right corner. NOT LEFT, because stapling makes it hard to see
things on that side.
Second, four things must be in
- student name
(both first and last name, and NOT initials)
- course name
(if in an advanced course, must write it),
- date the assignment
was done (not when you're turning it in, but
when you actually did it),
- what the assignment
actually is (such as page and problem numbers).
Example 1: PRACTICE PROBLEMS FROM THE TEXTBOOK. Notice that for the number of
problems, it's ok to write the first and last, with the word
various, because only some of the problems are assigned.

Example 2: NOTES. Write the word notes and also write
the section number.
Example 3: WORKSHEET OR HANDOUT (such as Extra Credit
print-outs). If there's a worksheet or
handout that is being turned in, it might already have a place
for name...but maybe not for date or course. It's OK to
use any spaces already provided...but make sure you also write
in anything that wasn't given a space. You must still
have all four things (name, course, date, assignment title).
If you write something in other than the provided spaces, put
it in the right corner again. Notice that in this
example, there was a space provided for name and date, and the
assignment was already written on the paper. The only
thing missing this time was the name of the course, which is
now in the top right corner.
