For many courses in STEM disciplines, at least part or a large fraction of the course may involve carefully crafted mathematical arguments that can be difficult for students without rigorous training in advanced mathematics to follow. Even for more theoretical math courses such as real analysis, which are likely populated with students in mathematically heavy disciplines, instructors still can still face high attrition rates. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies for effectively communicating mathematically dense course content, particularly allowing for the situation in which the students are coming from a wide array of mathematical backgrounds.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Biostatistics department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
