https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=20426
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=20426Teaching college mathematics can be a daunting task, indeed. It's nice for seasoned professionals and others to have a solid primer on the subject and this guide from Professor Suzanne Kelton is quite useful. The 54-page guide is divided into four chapters that cover documenting teaching practices, classroom basics, course policies, and discussion sections. Each of these chapters has additional subsections, such as syllabi, pace, and proofs. As a bonus, the document has an appendix that covers graphing techniques. The language of the document is jargon-free and accessible, which is a welcome departure from other guides. Visitors will want to share this item with friends in the field and even those who are teaching in other disciplines.Fri, 8 Nov 2013 14:43:31 -0600Lessons in Electric Circuits Vol V Reference

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=20142
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=20142The National Security Agency (NSA) has worked to craft these educational materials they are calling "concept development units" (CDUs). The units are divided into 11 sections, including Algebra, Calculus, and Data Analysis. Clicking on each of these sections will bring up a complete list of all the CDUs currently available. Each list offers a paragraph-long description of each activity, along with an indication of the appropriate grade level for each activity. Some of the activities include "Understanding Proportions and Scale Drawings," "Scatter Brained," "Fashion Sense and Dollar Wise" and "Squares in the Light." These are all terrific resources for educators, and the site also contains links to information about the Math and Related Sciences Camp (MARS) sponsored by the National Security Agency and links to other educational centers.Fri, 15 Feb 2013 10:50:45 -0600Bates College Online Resources for Calculus and Linear Algebra
