Math is one of the difficult subjects for most of the students as it is about manipulating numbers which is not such as easy thing. On the other hand; math research paper will not deal with numbers but content as well which is even more difficult. The whole paper is some kind of challenge for the students especially the first part of it that is the introductory paragraph. The writing content is always important and essential to grab the attention of the reader so the reader has to be very careful while writing this topic.
Introduction is where a reader decides to move on reading the paper or not so it totally depends on the strength of an introductory paragraph to foster them to read the body of the paper.
Let us now examine some essential features of an introductory paragraph.
What is the main theme of the paper you are writing? Here you will have to mention that subject area. For example; will you be dealing with arithmetic, geometry, algebra etc. Statement of the subject will clear everything in the first part of the introductory paragraph.
State the topic of the paper:
Math is something which is logical; here you cannot beat about the bush so make things clear in your head in the first place. Math research paper always demands a clear picture and to the point answer of the question. Therefore, the topic of your paper should be clear and precise as well. Think hard; what should be the topic that will end on a one point answer.
Once you know what should be the topic of your paper then you must dig out every bit of information about. This background information would be illustrated after the statement of the topic of thisresearch papers. Though, background information isn’t mandatory in such type of papers but if you are writing from a theoretical aspect then you will be required to mention the background details about it.
Scope means the feasibility of the subject. Here you will have to ensure that whatever you are talking about the subject is viable, practical and feasible because people are generally more towards a practical application of a topic and math is itself something that is away from the imaginative and theoretical discussions.
For a math research paper, it is obvious to create a thesis statement that is logical and powerful. Furthermore, it should be precise, concise and specific in not more than two lines. This is how you can write a thesis statement of research paper on math.
