Breaking long-held traditions has been demanding for the faculty and their students alike. But it has also been rewarding--many students are grasping mathematics and science concepts in deeper, more meaningful ways than they ever have before. For the professors, who care profoundly about their areas of expertise, this payoff has made the extra effort--or what one even called "the agony"-- of changing their teaching approaches worthwhile.
Journeys of Transformation captures the stories of 17 of these faculty members. For any mathematics or science professor who is concerned about students' understanding--and who has the courage to depart from tradition--Journeys of Transformation will provide practical advice as well as inspiration.
