    Committee Charges
    1/31/2011The MAA Classroom Resource Materials series is intended to provide faculty with resource materials not ordinarily available through commercial publishers. The series is a response to a survey of members in which 45 percent of the respondents indicated a strong interest in obtaining useful classroom resource materials. When appropriate, the material will be published in a form that is easily duplicated for distribution to students. The committee solicits, reviews and edits manuscripts for this series.

    Committee Charges
    1/31/2011This committee was formed in 1987.
    The Spectrum Series of the Mathematical Association of America was so named to reflect its purpose: to publish a broad range of books including biographies, accessible expositions of old or new mathematical ideas, reprints and revisions of excellent out-of-print books, popular works, and other monographs of high interest that will appeal to a broad range of readers, including students and teachers of mathematics, mathematical amateurs, and researchers.
    Spectrum Books will consist of wide-ranging, high-quality volumes that complement existing series and round out the Association's overall book publishing program. Proposed projects include biographies, popular expositions of old and new ideas in the mathematical sciences, elementary problem books, volumes dealing with historical topics, and books that focus on the teaching of mathematics. Occasional reprints of outstanding out-of-print books might also become Spectrum volumes.
