Appova, Aina K. – PRIMUS, 2018

This paper discusses the ways in which teacher educators can effectively engage prospective teachers (PTs) in lesson study during mathematics methods courses. Evidence from this work suggests that engagement in lesson study provides PTs with opportunities to strengthen their knowledge about mathematics, students, and pedagogy. More specifically,…

Holdener, J.; Milnikel, R. – PRIMUS, 2016

In this article we present three group activities designed for math students: a balloon-twisting workshop, a group proof of the irrationality of p, and a game of Math Bingo. These activities have been particularly successful in building enthusiasm for mathematics and camaraderie among math faculty and students at Kenyon College.

Groetsch, C. W. – PRIMUS, 2005

An aspect of the long history of the struggle to quantify motion is briefly traced through three extended problem sets suitable for use in first year calculus courses. The sketch culminates with an application of simple mathematics to one of the most current problems in the theory of the universe. (Contains 2 figures.)
