The purpose of this digest is to review current trends in mathematics courses and instruction in higher education. Discussed are concerns regarding undergraduate mathematics programs and courses; types of programs and activities developed with precollege schools and students; current developments in college mathematics programs, courses, and materials for mathematics majors; and current developments in college mathematics programs, courses, and materials for nonmajors. Selected sources of information on college level developments in mathematics are listed. A list of 12 selected references is provided. (CW)
