The College Mathematics Journal


The College Mathematics Journal is an expository magazine aimed at teachers of college mathematics, particularly those teaching the first two years. It is published by Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Mathematical Association of America and is a continuation of Two-Year College Mathematics Journal. It covers all aspects of mathematics. It publishes articles intended to enhance undergraduate instruction and classroom learning, including expository articles, short notes, problems, and "mathematical ephemera" such as fallacious proofs, quotations, cartoons, poetry, and humor.[1] Paid circulation in 2008 was 9,000 and total circulation was 9,500.[2]
