PRIMUS: Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate
Studies. Quarterly, 112 pp each, 6" x 9". Brian J. Winkel, editor, Dept.
of Mathematics, Rose-Hulman 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.
