A fresh start for collegiate mathematics : rethinking the courses below calculus( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each year, over 1,000,000 students take college-level courses below calculus such as pre-calculus, college algebra and others that fulfill general education requirements. Most college algebra courses, and certainly all pre-calculus courses, were originally intended to prepare students for calculus. Most are still offered in this spirit, even though only a small percentage of students has any intention of taking calculus. The MAA'S goal has been to refocus the courses below calculus to provide better mathematical experiences for all students. This initiative involves a greater emphasis on conceptual understanding with a de-emphasis on rote manipulation. The use of realistic applications, math modeling and data analysis that reflect the way mathematics is used in other disciplines is encouraged, along with active learning approaches (including group work, exploratory activities and projects). The initiative emphasizes communication skills: reading, writing, presenting and listening. The appropriate use of technology to enhance conceptual understanding, visualization, and inquiry enables students to tackle real-world problems. The 49 papers in this volume discuss various aspects of this issue. The major themes include: new visions for introductory collegiate mathematics, transition from high school to college, needs of other disciplines, research on student learning, implementation issues, and ideas and projects that work
Workshop Mathematics: Using New Pedagogy and Computers in Introductory Mathematics and Statistics Courses by Nancy Baxter Hastings( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report describes a workshop on developing a set of three introductory mathematics courses using new pedagogical techniques and computer technology. The courses provide underprepared students with multiple entry points into the study of mathematics and serve as a gateway for students' continued study of mathematics. These workshop courses in quantitative reasoning, statistics, and calculus abandon the traditional lecture approach in favor of an interactive format in which students work collaboratively on activities designed to help them explore and discover mathematical ideas for themselves. This document contains an executive summary detailing the project overview, purpose, background and origins, project description, evaluation/project results, and conclusions. (Ask)
