Using the Philosophy of Mathematics in Teaching Undergraduate Mathematics is a collection of mostly original essays by mathematicians and philosophers on the topic. It was inspired by Bonnie Gold’s CMJ article “How Your Philosophy of Mathematics Impacts Your Teaching.” That article (reprinted in this volume) argued that one’s personal philosophy of mathematics affects his or her teaching and students, usually implicitly and often unconsciously. It also advocated making that impact explicit by having the teacher explain to their students where they are coming from and what some other options might be.

The majority of essays in this volume are reports from colleagues explaining how they tried to implement this mandate in various courses and what successes and challenges they enjoyed. Like most good Notes volumes, it will repay the thoughtful reader with many ideas that can profitably be carried into the classroom.
