PRIMUS: Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies. Quarterly, 112 pp each, 6" x 9". Brian J. Winkel, editor, Dept. of Mathematics, RoseHulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, IN 47803. $34/yr in US, $40/yr outside.
PRIMUS, celebrating its first birthday, is a refereed journal that provides a much needed "forum for the exchange of ideas in mathematics education at the college level." Some of the articles in its first year have treated advice for undergraduates on how to write mathematics, using software in teaching differential equations, having students write word problem poems, implementing Taylor polynomials on a spreadsheet, introducing writing and speaking in mathematics courses, and lots more ideas on how to reform and revitalize the instruction in your courses, from intermediate algebra through calculus, statistics, geometry, and differential equations. Read PRIMUS for ideas, and share your own ideas by writing for it.
