MATH 285 Fall 2012 Teaching Mathematics (Q)

Under faculty supervision, student-teachers will prepare and conduct scheduled weekly extra sessions for Mathematics 103, for smaller, assigned groups of students. For these sessions they will prepare presentations, assign and grade homework, and answer questions on the course material and on the homework. They will be available to their students outside of class, attend and assist at Mathematics 103 lectures (3 hours a week), and visit and evaluate each other's sessions. There is a weekly meeting, for an hour or two, including organizational matters, deeper study of the mathematics discussed, and practical teaching skills. In addition, there will be other special meetings as needed. There will be assigned readings, discussion, drills, and weekly homework or papers. This is a seminar whose focus is both on education and transforming lives, as well as on mathematics and the mechanics of teaching it.
Class Format: tutorial/teaching
