Mathematics Teachers' Circles consist of groups of mathematicians and K12 teachers who meet regularly to discuss interesting mathematical problems.
The Rutgers Math Teachersâ€™ Circle (RUMTC) was founded in 2014 and is a member of the nationallevel Math Teachersâ€™ Circle Network (http://www.mathteacherscircle.org/), as well as of the National Association of Math Circles (https://www.mathcircles.org/). Our circle is mainly for middle school teachers, but we welcome high school and upper elementary teachers as well.

Information about the positions:
Each semester, the Mathematics Department hires undergraduate and graduate students in good standing to grade homework assignemtns, Maple labs, and Matlabs for several undergraduate and a few graduate courses.
Graders are typically given a few days to grade an assignment, so the working hours of graders are flexible. The pay for all courses, except Math 244 and Math 251, is $1113 per hour per course (depending on the level); the work load is a total of 34 hours per week, on average. The time commitment for each Math 244 or Math 251 is 3 hours per week, on average.
Before applying, please ask yourself if you will realistically have time to take on this commitment. It is extremely important that all deadlines the professors set for completing the grading are met. If you are interested in being considered for this position, please complete the entire form below. Please note there is often considerable interest in these grading positions, so not every applicant could be hired. To be considered for a course, an applicant needs to have successfully completed the course (with an A grade) at Rutgers, and have a GPA of at least 3.4.
This Spring, we will be hiring graders for the following courses only:
103, 104, 106, 152H(only)
244, 250, 251, 252, 285, 292
300, 311, 312, 336, 338, 348, 350, 351, 354, 356, 357, 373
403, 412, 421, 423, 428, 432, 437, 452, 477, 478, 481, 487
528
We will NOT hire graders for any other courses. Please do not request them.
The Spring 2020 application
To apply for a Grader position for any course in Spring 2020, please complete the Spring 2020 Grader application.
=============
** If you have any questions, please email Professor Mavrea at grader_coordinator@math.rutgers.edu.
*** Due to the large number of applications, only applicants who are selected will be contacted (via email).

Prerequisites:
Text: Linear Algebra (4th ed.), by Friedberg, Insel and Spence,
Prentice Hall, 2003 ISBN 0130084514. For this section, any recent edition of the textbook should be sufficient.
MW4  0140P0300  HLL009  BUS 
The course is strongly based on Math 250. However, we'll work axiomatically, starting from the abstract notions of vector space and of linear transformation. Much of the homework and many of the exam and quiz problems will require you to write precise proofs, building on your proofwriting experience in Math 300. From this more abstract viewpoint, we'll be developing linear algebra far beyond Math 250, with new insight and new applications.
Class attendance is very important. A lot of what we do in class will involve collective participation. We will cover the topics indicated in the syllabus below, but the dates that we cover some of the topics might be adjusted during the semester, depending on class discussion, etc. Such adjustments, along with the almostweekly homework assignments, will be announced in class and also posted on this webpage, so be sure to check this webpage regularly. Absences from a single class due to minor illnesses should be selfreported using the university system; for longer absences, students should email me with the situation. I reserve the right to lower the course grade up to one full letter grade for poor attendance.
Makeups for exams are generally not given; if a student has an extremely good reason (e.g. documented medical emergency) I may rearrange the grading scheme to accomodate.
Problem sets are due on most Tuesdays. There are no problems due on the two midtermexam Tuesdays.
Note that we will cover significant material from all the chapters in the book, Chapters 17.
Grading policy: First midterm exam: 100 points; Second midterm exam: 100 points; Problem sets and quizzes: 100 points; Final exam: 200 points (Total: 500 points).

The exam dates are listed in the schedule above. Any conflict (such as with a religious holiday) should be reported to me at the beginning of the semester, so that the exam may be rescheduled.
Students with disabilities requesting accommodations must follow the procedures outlined at https://ods.rutgers.edu/students/applyingforservices
All Rutgers students are expected to be familiar with and abide by the academic integrity policy. Violations of the policy are taken very seriously. In particular, your work should be your own; you are responsible for properly crediting all help with the solution.
The Problem Sets are available in the assignments directory on the course Sakai site.
Problem sets should be handwritten in reasonably clear writing, with an explanation of any assistance given. Typewritten assignments are allowable only by special arrangement (disability etc.) Scans of problem sets may be submitted electronically in emergencies (illness or accident) by upload to Sakai.
Some basic writing guidelines are as follows. All answers must be written in complete sentences; avoid starting each sentence with a symbol; ensure that each variable or notation is defined; number sentences or formulas as necessary so that you may refer back to them. To prove a "for all x", usually begin with "Let x be a ...". To prove an "there exists x" statement, you must construct a particular x satisfying the given property, so "Define x to be ...". To prove a that property A implies property B, begin with "Assume Property A...." Then deduce Property B. Sets are equal if they have the same elements; functions are equal if they have the same values; to prove something does not satisfy a list of axioms; it suffices to show that one of the axioms fails. On both problem sets and exams you may use properties in the text or class (referring to them by page or date) if they come before the problem you are solving in the development of the material.

Math 135 provides an introduction to calculus. It is taken primarily by students interested in the biological sciences, business, economics, and pharmacy. Math 135 may be followed by Math 136.
There is another calculus sequence, Math 151152251, which is taken by students in the mathematical and physical sciences, engineering, and computer science. Although it is possible to take Math 152 after Math 135, this is not a recommended sequence. More importantly, the prerequisite for Math 251 is Math 152; Math 136 does not satifsy this prerequisite.
Students who may need to take Math 152 or 251 should start their study of calculus with Math 151, and students who decide after taking Math 135 that they may wish to take Math 251 should follow Math 135 with Math 152.
In addition to the standard 4credit format of the course, a a 5credit format has been used for some of the sections, but only the 4credit format is now being offered.

Abstract: The BianchiEgnell Stability Estimate is a stability estimate or quantitative version of the Sobolev Inequality â€“ it states that the difference of terms in the Sobolev Inequality controls the distance of a given function from the manifold of extremals of the Sobolev Inequality with distance measured in the gradient square or \[\dot{H}^1\]norm. In this talk, we present an extension of the BianchiEgnell Stability Estimate to Bakry, Gentil, and Ledouxâ€™s Generalization of the Sobolev Inequality to Continuous Dimensions. We also demonstrate a deep link between the Sobolev Inequality and a oneparameter family of sharp GagliardoNirenberg (GN) inequalities and how this link can be used to derive a new stability estimate on the oneparameter family of sharp GN inequalities from our stability estimate on Bakry, Gentil, and Ledouxâ€™s Generalization of the Sobolev Inequality to Continuous Dimensions.
Here's a \[\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}=1\]test equation.
