Do you think mathematics communication is important for teaching mathematics? In what ways can teachers enhance students mathematics communication? Do you think ICT (Information and communication technology) can assist the enhancement of mathematics communication?

Yes. Teachers can enhance student's mathematical communication skills by giving them an intuitive feel for the subject. After that it's up to the students to find ways suitable for them to communicate the ideas/concepts in math.

Oh... I meant to answer this thread; perhaps a bit late now... "Mathematical communication is important in teach mathematics" is a truism. There's no way to disagree with that, and have any clue what you're talking about. Lecturers can certainly help students learn mathematical communication by communicating math well in the first place. Good writers become good in large part by reading good writing.
