Research into the teaching and learning of mathematics in higher education is in its infancy as a recognized academic field, and little has been published to inform and assist those teaching the subject. However, interest is growing in teaching quality, in the training of teaching assistants, and in staff development. This book makes available a wide selection of material on mathematics teaching and learning -- purpose, curriculum design, teaching methodology and specific material -- produced at a series of working conferences, it will be useful to all teachers and tutors of mathematics in higher education.
