The Eighth Characteristic for Successful Calculus Programs: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Practices

Hagman, Jessica Ellis – PRIMUS, 2021

Through a multi-year, national calculus study, researchers have recently identified seven characteristics of successful college calculus programs. We identified these seven characteristics by visiting five doctoral-granting mathematics departments with successful calculus programs and uncovering the common traits among them. These seven traits…

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…

Apkarian, Naneh; Kirin, Dana; Gehrtz, Jessica; Vroom, Kristen – PRIMUS, 2021

The Mathematical Association of America's "Precalculus to Calculus: Insights and Innovations Conference" brought together representatives of mathematics departments from across the country with members of two national research projects to share and discuss both research findings and on-the-ground concerns of faculty. In this article, we…

Bertrand, Elliott; McArdle, David T.; Thoma, Lubos; Wu, Li – PRIMUS, 2021

The percentage of college students receiving unproductive grades in introductory mathematics courses is a concern for post-secondary institutions across the country. Many factors can be targeted as potential explanations for this lack of success, yet none of these issues are more noteworthy than the fact that many students enter college…

Lewis, Drew; Clontz, Steven; Estis, Julie – PRIMUS, 2021

Team-Based Learning (TBL) is a cooperative learning strategy blending elements of flipped learning, inquiry-based learning, and problem-based learning. Although used quite frequently in other disciplines, use of this strategy in mathematics has been limited. In this article, we describe how TBL can be implemented in math courses with adherence to…

Sole, Marla A. – PRIMUS, 2021

Financial literacy is ideally suited to be integrated into mathematics courses and taught in an interdisciplinary manner. Students learn best and are motivated when tackling real-world meaningful questions. This article shares how elementary mathematics was applied to better understand the debate about raising the minimum wage and the United…

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…

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…

Goyer, Alysia; Lynch, Alison; Wand, Jeffrey – PRIMUS, 2021

With the goal of improving student success, the chancellor of the California State University (CSU) system issued an executive order that required all CSU campuses to eliminate remedial math courses as of Fall 2018 and place all first-year students into appropriate General Education (GE) mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses. The Mathematics…

McClendon, David M.; Weller, Kirk; Trouba, Jerome; Brigance, Sandra; Dekker, Michael – PRIMUS, 2021

In this paper, we describe the evolution of calculus instruction at a mid-sized, career-oriented, comprehensive public university. Changes in practice, that began with a single faculty member implementing technology as a tool for student inquiry, have spread to other department faculty via support from an internal grant, workshops, and the use of…

Gruber, Sean; Rosca, Raluca I.; Chazan, Daniel; Fleming, Elizabeth; Balady, Steve; VanNetta, Catherine; Okoudjou, Kasso A. – PRIMUS, 2021

Addressed toward course coordinators and departmental leaders interested in redesigning an undergraduate mathematics course, we highlight the steps our team at the University of Maryland, College Park has taken in bringing active learning to our Precalculus course. We provide examples of ways in which we have coordinated active learning across…

Lange, Karin E.; Deiger, Megan; Bourque, Matthew; Tingley, Peter; Peters, Emily; Jordan, Laurie E.; Giaquinto, Anthony – PRIMUS, 2021

In the context of national collaborative efforts to increase the prevalence of active learning strategies in undergraduate precalculus and calculus classrooms, we discuss the context, strategy, and processes used at one university to create change within a mathematics department. We highlight the use of a unified active learning approach and the…

Miller, E.; Fowler, J.; Johns, C.; Johnson, J., Jr.; Ramsey, B.; Snapp, B. – PRIMUS, 2021

We discuss a decade of initiatives to improve the teaching and learning of calculus at The Ohio State University. Calculus at OSU is taught in lecture/recitation format with large lectures and is tightly coordinated, so all innovations had to occur within that framework. We show how many smaller projects built upon one another to create a larger…
