The modules in the series will be self-contained text and problem material that can be used for one or more class meetings in an undergraduate or high school course. The idea is to make recent advances in dm/tcs known to students speedily. The modules will state their topics carefully and pinpoint particular theorems and lots of examples (perhaps of special cases) for which proofs/algorithms can be given and exercises written that students can solve. There will also be pointers to more extensive results and open questions. The modules will be somewhat like the UMAP Modules published over the last 25 years by COMAP, the Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications Project, and widely used, but DIMACS modules will be related to the special research foci and the many outreach activities at the center. DIMACS modules will take advantage of advances in technology. They will all be available electronically, and some may be interactive. We are planning to bundle modules into DIMACS volumes, to be published in the DIMACS book series. This series is published by the American Mathematical Society. AMS is amenable to co-publishing agreements with other publishers such as NCTM and MAA in order to maximize exposure of a volume and it is likely that the volumes of DIMACS modules will be co-published. Modules will be available electronically without charge, and in hard copy at cost.
Modules will be aimed at both upper and lower level undergraduate and high school courses. There are two year college faculty on the editorial board of the series to help to develop modules aimed at two year college courses.
The modules editorial board has a chief editor, five associate editors, and other board members. Here is a list of board members:
Chief Editor: Joseph Malkevitch, York College (CUNY)
