It's about Time: The Relationships between Coverage and Instructional Practices in College Calculus
Johnson, Estrella; Ellis, Jessica; Rasmussen, Chris
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v47 n4 p491-504 2016
This paper is based on a large-scale empirical study designed to investigate Calculus I programmes across the United States to better understand the relationship between instructors' concerns about coverage, instructional practices, and the nature of the material covered. We found that there was no association between instructors feeling pressured to go through material quickly to cover all the required topics and intended pacing. Furthermore, our results suggest that both intended pacing and feelings of pressure are poor indicators of instructional practices.
