Homework due day 16 (Tuesday)

  1. Use the web to read a bunch of teaching statements in mathematics. Print out one or two that are your favorites and be able to explain what you like about them. Although you will probably end up reading about some good or interesting teaching practices or styles, try to focus on what makes the statement itself good (i.e. apart from the practices it describes).
  2. Read the AAUW "Why so few?" summary and recommendations (5.5 pages).

Heads up that we'll be asking for draft teaching statements later in the week, and have you give your final 5-minute research presentations 1pm on Thursday.
