The context: The broad goal of IMSc's Enriching Collegiate Education series of workshops is to bring research mathematicians and college teachers together in an effort to enrich mathematics education in colleges. It is noteworthy in this context that IMSc is primarily a research institute. This particular workshop is being held as a Teacher's Enrichment Workshop, one of a series sponsored by the NCM.
This week-long workshop was aimed at mathematics teachers at engineering colleges, to enable them to revisit and update content knowledge. The lectures covered some particular topics (see below). Discussion hours offered opportunities to get doubts cleared and work out exercises (both routine and advanced).
