Hillock, Poh Wah; Khan, R. Nazim – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

This article is a follow-up to an earlier paper on the mathematics support learning tutorial programme (SLT), an intervention programme at The University of Queensland that targets students considered to be at risk of failing Calculus and Linear Algebra I, the first tertiary level mathematics subject at The University of Queensland. The first…

Wiggins, Harry; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 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…

Hillock, Poh Wah; Jennings, Michael; Roberts, Anthony; Scharaschkin, Victor – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013

This article describes a mathematics support programme at the University of Queensland, targeted at first-year engineering students identified as having a high risk of failing a first-year mathematics course in calculus and linear algebra. It describes how students were identified for the programme and the main features of the programme. The…

Reisel, John R.; Jablonski, Marissa; Hosseini, Hossein; Munson, Ethan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012

A summer bridge program for incoming engineering and computer science freshmen has been used at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee from 2007 to 2010. The primary purpose of this program has been to improve the mathematics course placement for incoming students who initially place into a course below Calculus I on the math placement examination.…

Shorter, Nichole A.; Young, Cynthia Y. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011

This experiment was designed to determine which assessment method: continuous assessment (in the form of daily in-class quizzes), cumulative assessment (in the form of online homework), or project-based learning, best predicted student learning (dependent upon post-test grades) in an undergraduate mathematics course. Participants included 117…

Gonzalez-Martin, Alejandro S.; Camacho, Matias – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2004

This paper analyses the answers of a group of first-year university Mathematics students to a questionnaire, with the aim of determining the difficulties they have when carrying out non-routine tasks related to improper integrals. The questionnaire consisted of nine questions including not only calculus tasks and determining the convergence of…
