DeLong, Matthew; Winter, Dale; Yackel, Carolyn A. – PRIMUS, 2005
The current work is the first article in a two-paper series exploring the role of explicit learning objectives in undergraduate mathematics instruction. A definition of student-learning objective (SLO) is introduced. We give examples of SLOs for topics from introductory college and university mathematics courses. We list potential advantages of a…

DeLong, Matthew; Winter, Dale; Yackel, Carolyn A. – PRIMUS, 2005
We review the processes of goal identification employed in teacher planning. A new type of graphical organizer (Fact-Action-Schema-Transcript or FAST) is introduced and its applications to teacher planning discussed. We describe a pair of algorithms for (a) creating FASTs for undergraduate mathematics and (b) using FASTs to create sets of student…

DeLong, Matthew; Winter, Dale; Yackel, Carolyn A. – PRIMUS, 2003
We apply a research-based analytical framework (MALA, for motivation, activity, learning and attribution) to better understand two student-centered college mathematics classes. We demonstrate ways in which the framework can be used to systematically identify problems with classroom management, to generate meaningful suggestions for improvement of…

DeLong, Matthew; Winter, Dale – Primus, 1998
Identifies and analyzes some recurrent problems with the implementation of cooperative and active learning strategies. Addresses the use of questions, management of instructor-centered activities, management of in-class group activities, and relinquishing forms of control in the classroom. (Author/ASK)
