Models That Work: Case Studies in Effective Undergraduate Mathematics Programs
A. (Ed.) Tucker 1995 MAA Notes #38
This publication is the culminating report of a case studies project aimed at providing a resource for faculty seeking to improve their undergraduate programs. The report summarizes effective practices at a set of mathematics departments who are excelling at attracting and training large numbers of mathematics majors, or preparing students to pursue advance study in mathematics, or preparing future school mathematics teachers, or attracting and training underrepresented groups in mathematics. This notes volume examines the common practices of effective programs, addresses each of the areas where departments excel, and provides site visit reports on ten departments.
