Teach a course in 1 month
I'd prefer sets of notes and then tutorial sessions for asking questions, rather than many hours a week of <s>lectures</s> copying sessions. Lectures really get my goat. If the fact that they get my goat, gets your goat, then your goat is easily got. The word "everyone" in my above comment could be ammended to "many people's" to take into account those who find lectures useful. Uni is for getting a degree/understanding/other stuff, not for spending time as a human photocopier. |

This question highlights the old saying: "A lecture is a system for transferring the lecturer's notes to the students' without going thru the minds of either.". Why not just give the students a set of photocopied notes and be done with it. The way most lectures are conducted is absurd and utterly wasteful of everyone's time. |

Applications of Measure, Integration and Banach Spaces to Combinatorics
The existence of the internet means that the days of - Me Teacher. Me Teach. You Pupil. You Learn. - are over. Instead tell the students how interconnected mathematics is, and ask each of them to search the internet to find papers that link functional analysis to their own favourite topics and perhaps ask the students to present their findings to the class. Make it a competition to see who can find the most interesting links. |

Does P≠NP over ℝ imply P≠NP ?
Real number algorithms as described by Smale with a suitable formulation of P≠NP over R. |
