Programmatic Reform: The Care and Feeding of a Mathematics Major.
Callon, G. Daniel
This paper, written for those in higher education mathematics departments, reviews curriculum reform. Three major reasons for programmatic reform are outlined: (1) higher education faces a changing climate; (2) higher education faces a challenging clientele; and (3) mathematics educators face a changing content. The case is made for programmatic review and reform based on five fundamental operating principles that include active learning, accessibility, applicability, assessment, and accountability. (MM)
