I'm hoping this site gives a place where we can openly discuss plans for courses, success/failure of past designs and just generally how we envision math courses now and in the future. I'd also be happy if we could discuss how we ideally see the mentoring relationship in math. Booklist, ideal course lists, target graduate schools, how to study for the GRE. All these entirely too specific horrible not archive quality questions I envision. I envision a site where we can help each other as teachers help our students more effectively.
