Johns, Carolyn; Mills, Melissa – PRIMUS, 2021
During the Spring 2020 semester, universities transitioned to online instruction to slow the spread of COVID-19. During this time, mathematics support/tutoring centers also moved their services online. We discuss best practices for online tutoring from the literature and the shared experiences of 28 tutoring center leaders who transitioned to…

El Turkey, Houssein; Turki, Salam; Kottegoda, Yasanthi – PRIMUS, 2021
Many active learning practices highly depend on students' advance preparation for the class. However, reading Calculus can be a challenging task to students. We address this concern by assigning targeted pre-class readings in multiple Calculus courses. We report on our implementations, provide students' feedback, and discuss the lessons learned…

Childers, Annie Burns; Lu, Lianfang; Hairston, Joshua; Squires, Timothy – PRIMUS, 2021
This paper reports on mathematics remediation efforts at a public 4-year institution. Specifically, it describes redesign efforts that led to the implementation of co-requisite mathematics remediation. Data on this program were collected and analyzed with respect to completion rates, length of time to earn college mathematics credit, and factors…

Case, Joshua; Speer, Natasha – PRIMUS, 2021
In undergraduate mathematics, deductive reasoning plays important roles in teaching and learning various ideas, and is primarily characterized by the concept of logical implication. This comes up whenever conditional statements are applied, i.e., one checks if a statement's hypotheses are satisfied and then makes inferences. In calculus, students…

Moore-Russo, Deborah; Kornelson, Keri; Savic, Milos; Andrews, Candace – PRIMUS, 2021
In this case study, we use organizational development and change theory to look at how the University of Oklahoma (OU) has attended to the mathematical pathway leading to STEM fields. Using multiple sources of data, we are able to create an informative narrative that provides the particular context of the situation and in-depth picture of the…

Villalobos, Cristina; Kim, Hyung Won; Huber, Timothy J.; Knobel, Roger; Setayesh, Shaghayegh; Sasidharan, Lekshmi; Galstyan, Anahit; Balogh, Andras – PRIMUS, 2021
Research indicates multi-section coordination improves the academic performance of students in STEM education. This paper describes the process of coordination in Precalculus, Calculus 1, and Calculus 2 courses undertaken by a large department that grew from the merger of two institutions through a pilot program and a project grant. Components…

Carney, Debra; Sanders, Megan; Spiegel, Samuel; Swanson, Rebecca; Vasquez, Ariana – PRIMUS, 2021
This article describes a partially flipped course design for Calculus II which has been implemented by a varied instructional team at a medium-sized public engineering university (Colorado School of Mines (Mines)) over a period of three years. We have identified three main factors which have contributed to the success of the implementation: (1)…

Ellington, Roni; Barber, Janet; Tannouri, Ahlam; Syafrida, Syafrida; Nkwanta, Asamoah – PRIMUS, 2021
In this paper, we provide a report of preliminary findings of the Morgan State University (MSU) Student Engagement in Mathematics through an Institutional Network for Active Learning (SEMINAL) project and its focus on culturally responsive teaching (CRT) as an active learning framework for pre-calculus instruction. The paper concludes with a…

Petrilli, Salvatore J., Jr. – PRIMUS, 2021
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Adelphi University engaged in a year-long program revision of its mathematics major, which was initiated by a longitudinal study and the publication of the 2015 Curriculum Guide by the MAA's Committee on Undergraduate Programs in Mathematics. This paper stands as a short story, so to speak, of…

Maciejewski, Wes – PRIMUS, 2021
What if your students could access "any" resource during a test? How would they react? How would "you" react? This paper presents some results from a trial of allowing students access to notes, calculators, and any device connected to the internet, which occurred during a midterm in a second-year ordinary differential equations…

Turner, Dusty; Pleuss, James; Collins, Christopher – PRIMUS, 2021
In the continual pursuit of classroom learning effectiveness, researchers and educators aim to develop strategies that improve student performance and learning. One such strategy is to create academically homogeneous environments where students are grouped into classes based on their preconceived academic ability. The research team tests this…

Lahme, Brigitte; Shott, Martha – PRIMUS, 2021
In 2011, Sonoma State University developed a STEM first-year experience (supported by NSF STEP grant 1068445) that combines general education requirements in mathematics, biology, and critical thinking. The mathematics content includes topics from precalculus and elementary statistics, with a particular focus on using functions and modeling with…

Cline, Kelly; Huckaby, David A. – PRIMUS, 2021
We recorded the percentage of students voting on each option on every clicker question used in 19 introductory statistics classes. To identify the questions that provide the most useful feedback, we looked for those for which the percentage of students voting correctly varied the most from class to class, producing the largest standard deviations.…
