Abstract

This study aims to discuss issues faced by mathematics professors in teaching mathematics at some US universities during the COVID-19 pandemic. In attempt to accommodate students during the unprecedented time, how lenient should professors be? This study also outlines practices done by professors in shifting their teaching ideals to support students overcoming the challenges in mathematics distance learning while grappling the pressures of teaching evaluations.
