Despite much criticism, lectures remain a common and highly valued element of university mathematics teaching, with the potential to contribute significantly to learning. This potential, however, may not be realised because students’ and lecturers’ expectations, especially at the start of a degree course, are often very different. This chapter gives an overview of the difficulties and suggests ways in which lectures can be used to ease the transition from school to university mathematics.
