Audio-Tutorial Minicourses for College Algebra and Trigonometry: A Progress Report.
Svoboda, Rudy G.
Preliminary results are reported for courses in college algebra and trigonometry based on the Postlethwait audio-tutorial minicourse system which were developed at Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne (IPFW). Two IPFW faculty members, two secondary teachers, and two undergraduate mathematics majors formed a minicourse project team supported by a National Science Foundation Grant with each team member responsible for authoring a number of minicourses, i.e., writing study guides, designing art work in the study guides, developing the tape scripts and preparing the manuscripts for duplication. Although one individual was responsible for a given minicourse, the end product was a team effort. Instruction was designed to involve students actively in three different types of study sessions--independent study, weekly general assembly sessions, and integrated quiz sessions for small groups. The study guide for the minicourse on exponential functions is included. (JEG)
