Abstract

The aim of this paper is to report early findings from university mathematics teaching in the tutorial setting. The study addresses characteristics of the teaching of an experienced research mathematician and through interviews, her underlying considerations. An analysis of a teaching episode illuminates her use of generic examples to reveal aspects of a mathematical concept and links with the tutor's particular research practice, didactics and pedagogy emerge.
