Meeting the Challenge: The Engaged Lower Division Mathematics Classroom

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

With national attention focused on the first two years of college (due, in part, to the President's Council on Education), there is a resurgence of interest in introductory courses.   Nationally respected mathematics educator Karen Rhea will describe an introductory mathematics class model that encourages an interactive-engaged classroom for ~5000 students per year, how the style is supported, and the reasons why she believes the model promotes the goals of STEM education.   NSF and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) are currently conducting a study of successful programs in Calculus.  Some early data from that study will be presented. Please join Karen Rhea, Emeritus from the University of Michigan for this seminar and forum.
