Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath, n210 p18-19 Sep 2008
To make the Mathematics Enhancement Course (MEC) students realize that mathematics exist in a wider range of forms and environments than most will have encountered before, they are sent out on several trips and visits during the six-month course. This year one of the trips was to spend a day at the ATM conference. Afterwards the students had to complete an evaluation form for the trip and were also asked to provide a short piece of writing about their day at conference. The author analyzed these to find out what they learned and presents some of the feedback from her students.
