Now newly revised and expanded, this excellent self-help book is designed for first-time proposal writers and planners. The authors use a concise, straightforward approach, offering specific examples of how to find grants and how to plan, write, and submit proposals that get results. They also share their streamlining techniques for submitting more proposals in less time. Each of the techniques presented in the book has been extensively field tested. The authors offer greatly expanded coverage of computerized grants seeking, covering such topics as sources of public and private funding information on the World Wide Web, search engines, award information, online editorial advice, and access to forms and policy manuals. Also updated is the chapter on the basics of effective technical writing that includes helpful tips on document design, computer editing, and improving proposal readability.

Each year, over 1,000,000 students take college-level courses below calculus such as precalculus, college algebra and others that fulfill general education requirements. Most college algebra courses, and certainly all precalculus courses, were originally intended to prepare students for calculus. Most are still offered in this spirit, even though only a small percentage of students have any intention of taking calculus. This volume examines how the courses below calculus might be refocused to provide better mathematical experiences for all students. This initiative involves a greater emphasis on conceptual understanding with a de-emphasizing on rote manipulation. It encourages the use of realistic applications, math modeling and data analysis that reflect the ways mathematics is used in other disciplines. It promotes the use of active learning approaches, including group work, exploratory activities and projects. It emphasizes communication skills: reading, writing, presenting and listening. It endorses the appropriate use of technology to enhance conceptual understanding, visualization, and to enable students to tackle real-world problems.The 49 papers in this volume seek to focus attention on the problems and needs of the courses and to provide guidance to the mathematics community. Major themes include: new visions for introductory collegiate mathematics, transition from high school to college, needs of other disciplines, research on student learning, implementation issues, and ideas and projects that work.
