Attention English teachers and grammar Nazis: what is the correct punctuation?

In the equation above, a is one, b is two, and c is three. or would it be: In the equation above, a is one; b is two; and c is three. (pretend the equation above is "a+b=c") This would be for a technical paper. Thanks

    I agree with Junkseller. The whole point of punctuation is to provide clear signposts for the reader, and both your examples adequately fulfil that role. The commas work fine.
