Lol! So true. My calculus prof just did this on Friday.

Lectures are almost only show - so why not read a good textbook in the first place and teach yourself!

I take it that teaching high school mathematics is far different than teaching college mathematics.

High school teachers are required to have training in teaching, but they are not (repeat NOT) required to have any training in the subjects they teach.

Gary, nowadays, High School teachers do need training in their areas of instruction--but college teachers still do not have any requirements for Education courses.

To teach high school math and be highly qualified as outlined in no child left behind, you must have at least 60 college hours in mathematics.

So true... problem is do any college math teachers get this job because they really want to teach math or do research in math? i think there very few that want to do both....

Well, for certification in Iowa and at my particular institution, you need a year of calculus (or equivalent), a course in statistics, a course in geometry, and a course introducing you to various aspects of upper level mathematics, and a course in computer science.

The X proof is left to the reader as an exercise.

equally true of engineering profs :S

when your section's mid-term average is 40% and the other section's average is 70% for the same test, ask questions.

Yeah, that right there is the problem with many math classes and their teachers.
Furry cows moo and decompress.

This is why well-known research universities aren't always the best places to go for your undergrad . . .
