Let’s face it – we’re all human and we like our information “just-in-time.”
At McGraw-Hill Math, we recognize that there’s a lot more going on in your lives than textbooks and technology, and we want to help! We’ve launched Math Advice for Teaching in Higher Education, for profs by profs (otherwise known as M.A.T.H. Tips). The goal? To share best practices and lessons learned at just the right time during the semester, so that things go smoother and you keep your sanity.
We’d also like to hear from you! Send us your favorite brief tips, videos, links, and resources that will inspire and be part of future issues. Explore our Index and let us know what resources you need!
