Yoshida, R.; Page, R. – PRIMUS, 2022
In the fall of 2009 and in the spring of 2012, supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) in the National Institutes of Health (NIH), we designed a course "Phylogenetic Analysis and Molecular Evolution" (PAME), the first cross-listed course across three different colleges (College of Arts and Sciences,…

Prabhu, Sunitha – PRIMUS, 2022
Teaching Mathematics to tertiary students can be a challenge to educators, mainly because they must deal with learners' varying levels of readiness. Some of the factors attributing to the variability are learners' perceptions of mathematics, their previous learning experiences, and fear of failure. We implemented a teaching approach to facilitate…

Radmehr, Farzad; Nedaei, Mahboubeh; Drake, Michael – PRIMUS, 2022
Mathematics education faculty working in mathematics departments are commonly involved in teaching undergraduate mathematics courses, teaching and supervising postgraduate students of mathematics education, and developing mathematics teachers (pre-service and/or in-service). This paper proposes a new elective course that can be taken by either…

Alkhateeb, Haitham M. – PRIMUS, 2022
Developmental mathematics is often a barrier to student progress and success in college. As a result and for this reason, this research study describes the redesign of a developmental mathematics course at a U.S. East Coast university to decrease the amount of time it takes for students to complete their developmental requirement and increase the…

Banaian, Esther; Brauner, Sarah; Chandramouli, Harini; Klinger-Logan, Kim; Nadeau, Alice; Philbin, McCleary – PRIMUS, 2022
We detail our experience running an annual four-day workshop at the University of Minnesota, called the Mathematics Project at Minnesota (MPM). The workshop is for undergraduates who come from groups underrepresented in mathematics and aims to increase the participation and success of such groups in the mathematics major at the University. In this…

Childers, Adam F.; Taylor, David G. – PRIMUS, 2021
Teaching introductory statistics is a service requirement for many mathematics faculty, and the audience is often anxious about the subject and not always excited about the material. Making class fun, relevant, and visually stimulating is key to keeping students engaged in the material and also in promoting student learning. Collecting data from…

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…

Rämö, Johanna; Lahdenperä, Juulia; Häsä, Jokke – PRIMUS, 2021
Over the past 9 years, we have implemented, developed, and refined a novel student-centered teaching method called Extreme Apprenticeship in university mathematics context. In this paper, we report the theoretical orientation behind the method, as well as its practical implementation. We also reflect on our experiences gained from using it in our…

Peck, Frederick – PRIMUS, 2021
A deficit perspective is a propensity to locate the source of academic problems in deficiencies within students, their families, their communities, or their membership in social categories (such as race and gender). While the deficit perspective is a common topic of discussion in K-12 mathematics education, it is a much rarer topic of discussion…

Cooper, Andrew A. – PRIMUS, 2021
In this note, I argue for and discuss my experiences with explicitly incorporating principles of critical and creative thinking in a transitions course which serves mathematics, mathematics education, and statistics majors. I describe several specific assignments and classroom tasks designed to enhance critical and creative thinking. I also…

Hancock, Emilie; Karakok, Gulden – PRIMUS, 2021
As students learn to problem solve in authentic situations, they must also develop metacognitive tools to manage and regulate their problem-solving process. To foster process-focused metacognition utilized by mathematical thinkers and problem solvers, inquiry-based learning classroom practices and an adapted version of portfolio problems were…

Elsinger, Jason; Lewis, Drew – PRIMUS, 2020
This article describes a framework of Standards-Based Grading suitable for use in a variety of mathematics courses. We detail our experience adapting this framework to various courses, ranging from Pre-calculus to Differential Equations, at four different institutions, including both small liberal arts colleges and large universities, and in class…

Das, Tushar; George, Whitney; Warnberg, Nathan – PRIMUS, 2020
Mathematics educators view the equals sign as a bidirectional relation symbol, but the authors have observed that students might not have such flexibility in their understanding of the equals sign. The authors have observed that students have a hard time viewing mathematical properties (for example, log (MN) = log (M) log (N)) with bidirectional…

Habre, Samer – PRIMUS, 2020
A growing body of research supports writing as a means to learn mathematics. Although introductory courses have benefited the most from the spread of this mode of learning, writing may be promoted in advanced courses. This paper reports on writing tasks in a complex analysis course where the primary goal was for students to investigate…

Hanusch, Sarah – PRIMUS, 2020
A summative portfolio is a project completed at the end of the semester that gives a student an opportunity to look at a course as a whole. This study investigates whether collegiate mathematics students gain a deeper understanding of course material through the portfolio project, via an analysis of the students' work, and a survey of students'…
