MIROSLAV LOVRIC, McMaster University
Importance of Working Together  [PDF]

In this talk I plan to share my thoughts, emotions and ideas about two aspects of my life that I’m passionate about: mathematics and teaching mathematics.Going beyond our usual daily frustrations (Why don’t they just get this? They did not do conic sections in high school? What’s so difficult about uniform convergence?), I will suggest strategies that might help us improve things a bit. Drawing on my experiences in designing and teaching within interdisciplinary programs at McMaster, I will argue that communication – at all levels – could be the key to improving the quality of our teaching.
