The purpose of this exploratory, mixed-methods study was to compare student performance in flipped and non-flipped sections of Calculus I. The study also examined students' perceptions of the flipping pedagogy. Students in the flipped courses reported spending, on average, an additional 1-2 hours per week outside of class on course content. Students enrolled in the flipped sections also performed better than students from the non-flipped sections on the common final exam. A follow-up examination of Calculus II grades revealed a statistically significant difference in course grades between these two groups of students.
