Student Enrichment in Mathematics: A Case Study with First Year University Students
Wiggins, Harry; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v48 suppl 1 pS16-S29 2017
This paper presents an enrichment case study to showcase a possible avenue for attending to the needs of academically strong mathematics students. We report on a group of university students who were presented with the opportunity of exploring a specific first year mathematics topic deeper, using an inquiry-based learning approach as part of an enrichment programme. Following the intervention, students completed a questionnaire and a few were interviewed to establish their experiences of the enrichment programme. We discuss the successes and pitfalls of the intervention and report on the impact it had on the participants.
