Developing Independence in a Capstone Course: Helping Students Ask and Answer Their Own Questions
Camenga, Kristin A.
PRIMUS, v23 n4 p304-314 2013
We discuss a mathematics capstone course designed to help students grow in mathematical independence. We describe how the course is structured to support this goal and the major assignments: a course wiki, a group expository project, and an individual problem to solve and extend. Students learn to ask and answer their own questions, helping them to seek out and generate mathematical knowledge more independently. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
