# Giving Good Maths Talks

The upcoming block I have to coordinate a course on giving good talks. This also meant looking for good extra material for the students to reflect on what it means to give a good talk, what to be aware of and what tips can help to do a good job. Here is a collection of the resources I liked so far:

- MAA has a curated list of resources on giving mathematics talks which includes plenty of examples of good mathematics presentations
- There is an essay by John McCarthy on how to give a good colloquium talk with a response blog post on how to give a good 20min talk
- On the blog of the AMS there is a nice post on preparing a conference presentation, from what it means to many resources on how it can be done
- What characterizes a good presentation? There is a nice summary from an analogous course at MIT
- Terence Tao has a famous blog post on giving talks
- Jordan Ellenberg has a post with tips on giving talks that links an interesting pdf on the same topic
- A nice essay on giving talks by Bryna Kra

Let me know on twitter or mastodon (links on the left bar) if you have other suggestions!
