BC Case Studies Project

The Boston College Mathematics Case Studies Project, BCCase, is a now-completed, four year project that developed new training materials - Case Studies - for use in TA-training programs for mathematics graduate students, who will go on to become the next generation of university faculty.

The Case Studies enable institutions to better prepare their mathematics graduate students for their roles as teaching assistants and instructors. A more complete description of the project is given on the BCCase Studies Website.
