A Modified Approach to Team-Based Learning in Linear Algebra Courses
Nanes, Kalman M.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v45 n8 p1208-1219 2014
This paper documents the author's adaptation of team-based learning (TBL), an active learning pedagogy developed by Larry Michaelsen and others, in the linear algebra classroom. The paper discusses the standard components of TBL and the necessary changes to those components for the needs of the course in question. There is also an empirically controlled analysis of the effects of TBL on the student learning experience in the first year of TBL use.
