    Today's Teaching Seminar will be a discussion with colleagues from the Academic Center. The purpose of the seminar is to increase communication between the academic center and the math department. We will discuss topics such as the following: 1. What services are offered to math students? 2. When do you meet with students? 3. How many students do you see? 4. What do you do in extra help classes? 5. What kind of support would you like from the math department? 6. Have you made any observations about the different textbooks we are trying out this semester?
