Ma 10 Oral Presentation: The (Martial) Art of Giving Talks

Fall 2011, Caltech Math Department, Room 153, Wednesday 2 pm (we have the room until 5pm). Instructor: Matilde Marcolli

Brief Course Description

The purpose of this class is to teach students the skills of giving mathematical talks. Students will give presentations on topics of their choice and will learn how to effectively communicate their work in seminars and conferences and how to defend it from criticism from the audience. For the purpose of the class, students are encouraged to give presentations about their own work, if they have done some SURF project or research experience, and otherwise give talks about mathematical papers they are interested in reading.
