Suggestions on the Teaching of College Mathematics.
Mathematical Association of America, Berkeley, CA. Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics.
This handbook on effective college mathematics teaching offers suggestions on course planning; lecturing; using the blackboard, textbooks, and visual aids; making assignments; scheduling, composing, and grading tests; and giving grades. It also discusses feedback and instructor evaluation and includes a sample questionnaire that might be given to students. A section on the role of teaching assistants suggests that a program of regular visitation, evaluation, orientation, and guidance by regular faculty members be followed. The final section lists professional journals and periodicals concerned with higher education, and gives a bibliography of books on mathematics, mathematics history, and mathematics teaching. (DT)
