University-level mathematicians—whether focused on research or
teaching—recognize the need to develop effective ways for teaching
undergraduate mathematics. The Mathematics Department of the Korea
Advanced Institute of Science and Technology hosted a symposium on
effective teaching, featuring internationally distinguished researchers
deeply interested in teaching and mathematics educators possessing
established reputations for developing successful teaching
techniques. This book stems from that symposium.

The book deals with teaching mathematics, a core activity of the
contemporary university. It is suitable for the library of every
university and mathematician. It features a broad range of topics
(technology, pedagogy, philosophy, course content) of interest and value
to all who teach university mathematics. This is one of the few books
dealing with this essential subject.

The papers describe many different questions of teaching university
mathematics. How do we teach about proof? How can we use technology in
presenting mathematics? What are key issues of teaching mathematics to
students from other disciplines? How do we better equip teaching
assistants and new faculty?

Readers keen to learn from the experience of others in teaching
university mathematics will benefit from this book. Department heads
will find valuable teaching approaches for their faculty.

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