This document contains the papers presented at a conference designed to provide a forum to discuss the European Division mathematics and science program and to allow an opportunity for professional development. Papers on approaches to teaching specific topics in the Maryland mathematics and science curriculum, as well as on other aspects of teaching, were solicited, and faculty from all over Europe submitted proposals. The selections presented are as follows: (1) "Use of Diagrams in Solving Applied Problems"; (2) "Teaching Linear Inequalities: A Linear Programming Approach"; (3) "On a Systematic Presentation of Graphing"; (4) "An Aid for Remembering Trigonometric Relationships"; (5) "A Hands-on Approach to Teaching Trigonometry"; (6) "Interactive Calculus Teaching"; (7) "The Teaching of Calculus in Mechanics: An Alternative Approach"; (8) "Some Common Errors Made by Students in Basic Math"; (9) "Experiences Teaching UCSP 198T and MATH 101"; (10) "Backward Chaining as an Error-Free Teaching Technique: Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square"; (11) "Homework in Mathematics"; (12) "Criterion Referenced Assessment: With Special Reference to MATH 101"; (13) "Coping with Math and Science Anxiety in the Classroom"; (14) "Math Avoidance--Math Anxiety"; (15) "Understanding Mathematical Concepts"; (16) "Instructional Tools in Non-Laboratory Earth Science"; (17) "How to Teach Science without a Formal Laboratory"; (18) "Struggle against Dogmatism in the Teaching of Science"; (19) "Computer Assist for Students Writing Physics Lab Reports"; (20) "Using Detailed Handouts to Illustrate Calculus Concepts"; and (21) "A High-Level Application of Elementary College Mathematics Probability, Determinism and the Prime Numbers."
