Workshop Mathematics: Using New Pedagogy and Computers in Introductory Mathematics and Statistics Courses.
Hastings, Nancy Baxter; Rossman, Allan
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)
