Bringing Students to Occasional Seminar

on Undergraduate Teaching

That semester and the next (Spring 93 and Fall 93), I also encouraged my students (read: bribed them with extra credit points) to attend several sessions of the Mathematics Department's Occasional Seminar on Undergraduate Teaching (OSUG) on such topics as Cooperative Learning which are relevant, so that the students could both find out about math education reform efforts, and give their personal impressions and feedback to teaching reformers.

I also created my first Activity that semester for my students (assigned as extra-credit homework), before I even heard of "Activities" as such. Here is
The Calculator Puzzler
