"Making Beautiful Music in the Mathematics Classroom" Part III     by Matt DeLong

In the choral conducting class that I took as an undergraduate at Northwestern, we used Decker and Kirk’s well-known text. (It is like the Stewart’s Calculus of introductory choral conducting.) To the left is a quote from Chapter 0.

Decker and Kirk further unpack these five attributes in the chapter, and I have provided a summary below. As you go through the five slides that follow, you will notice that they could very easily constitute a list of what makes a good mathematics (or any!) instructor.
