University-level mathematicians--whether focused on research or teaching--recognize the need to develop effective ways for teaching undergraduate mathematics. The Mathematics Department of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology hosted a symposium on effective teaching, featuring internationally distinguished researchers deeply interested in teaching and mathematics educators possessing established reputations for developing successful teaching techniques. This book stems from that symposium. The book deals with teaching mathematics, a core activity of the contemporary university. It is suitable for the library of every university and mathematician. It features a broad range of topics (technology, pedagogy, philosophy, course content) of interest and value to all who teach university mathematics. This is one of the few books dealing with this essential subject. The papers describe many different questions of teaching university mathematics. How do we teach about proof? How can we use technology in presenting mathematics? What are key issues of teaching mathematics to students from other disciplines? How do we better equip teaching assistants and new faculty? Readers keen to learn from the experience of others in teaching university mathematics will benefit from this book. Department heads will find valuable teaching approaches for their faculty. This series is published in cooperation with the Mathematical Association of America. Readership Research mathamaticians interested in teaching and mathematics education. |
