On the Distance between a Teacher and a Class
Nelson, David
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v26 n2 p89-94 2007
The main aim of this article is to explore models of a teacher addressing a class sitting in a rectangular classroom or lecture theatre and derive central measures of the distance between the teacher and the class or between a lecturer and an audience. This involves an interesting range of mathematics and two metrics. A secondary aim is to discuss according to several criteria the optimization of the position chosen by a teacher when addressing a class. Thus, in this article, mathematics is applied to its teaching.
