Math @ Duke



Clark Bray, Associate Professor of the Practice and Supervisor of First-Year Instruction (SFI)

Clark Bray

I am interested in:
1. the execution and continual refinement of my teaching methods, in terms of both the
mathematical choices and the style of presentation;
2. the continual evaluation of course content and materials with an eye for the intellectual
objectives of the Department of Mathematics, the ever-changing demands to be faced by
the students after completion of the course, and the overall satisfaction of the students;
3. the execution and continual refinement of the administration of the undergraduate pro-
gram of the Department of Mathematics, appropriate to my position as the Supervisor
of First-Year Instruction.
