Reinventing the Undergraduate Curriculum: Strategies To Enhance Student Learning in Mathematics and Science.
Nelson, Barbara J., Comp.; Wallner, Barbara K., Comp.; Powers, Myra L. Ed.; Hartley, Nancy K., Ed.
This publication is a compilation of examples of practical, easily implemented activities to help mathematics, science, and education faculty duplicate efforts by the Rocky Mountain Teacher Education Collaborative (RMTEC) to reform and revise curriculum for preservice educators. Activities are organized by content areas: mathematics; geology, physics, and biology; chemistry; and educational methods. Each activity lists the RMTEC strategies relevant to that activity, the class in which the activity was used, and the instructors. There is some repetition among activities, since each is intended to stand alone. Activity handouts for students are in boxes and may be reproduced. Contact information is listed for participants in the production of this publication. The publication concludes with a description of searching the ERIC Database on science and mathematics topics.
