A co-publication of the AMS and CBMS

The sixth volume of *Research in Collegiate
Mathematics Education* presents state-of-the-art research on
understanding, teaching, and learning mathematics at the postsecondary
level. The articles advance our understanding of collegiate
mathematics education while being readable by a wide audience of
mathematicians interested in issues affecting their own students.
This is a collection of useful and informative research regarding the
ways our students think about and learn mathematics.

The volume opens with studies on students' experiences with calculus reform and on the effects of concept-based calculus instruction. The next study uses technology and the van Hiele framework to help students construct concept images of sequential convergence. The volume continues with studies on developing and assessing specific competencies in real analysis, on introductory complex analysis, and on using geometry in teaching and learning linear algebra. It closes with a study on the processes used in proof construction and another on the transition to graduate studies in mathematics.

Whether they are specialists in education or mathematicians interested in finding out about the field, readers will obtain new insights about teaching and learning and will take away ideas that they can use.

This series is published in cooperation with the Mathematical Association of America.
