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…

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…

Ksir, Amy E.; Allman, Justin M.; Hetherington, Noble, III.; Selbach-Allen, Megan E.; Skipper, Daphne – PRIMUS, 2021
Over the past 10 years, the authors of this paper have implemented a series of project-based and inquiry-based learning initiatives in the calculus sequence at our institution. These initiatives took place in a department with an existing strong culture supporting teaching innovation and improvement. In this paper, we describe three initiatives in…

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…

Soto, Roberto C.; Marzocchi, Alison S. – PRIMUS, 2021
With knowledge in hand that teaching mathematics through active engagement leads to better learning outcomes for students, the field of mathematics is now tasked with researching effective facilitation of professional development for faculty. Our university embarked on an initial year of active learning professional development for mathematics…

Mingus, Tabitha T. Y.; Koelling, Melinda – PRIMUS, 2021
Faced with students failing to complete Calculus 1 at rates of almost 50%, the Department of Mathematics at Western Michigan University addressed the lack of progression of STEM majors through this gateway course and, thus, through their intended majors. In this case study, we describe the four-year process of redesigning our single variable…

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)…

Maciejewski, Wes; Bragelman, John; Campisi, Marion; Hsu, Tim; Gottlieb, Andrea; Schettler, Jordan; Bergthold, Trisha; Cayco, Bem – PRIMUS, 2021
Our university is one campus of the larger, 23-campus California State University system. In 2017, the Chancellor of the system discontinued the developmental mathematics programs at all 23 campuses. This caught us by surprise and compelled us to act quickly. This article gives an overview of our response, highlighting the change our department…

Krause, Andrew J.; Maccombs, Ryan J.; Wong, Willie W. Y. – PRIMUS, 2021
Our traditional model of calculus instruction at a large public research university emphasized factual knowledge and procedural fluency with few realistic applications, leaving a chasm between classroom mathematics and disciplinary practice. Amid an ongoing effort by our department to improve undergraduate learning outcomes, we replaced…

Bazett, Trefor; Clough, Crystal L. – PRIMUS, 2021
Our department has experienced a significant culture transformation in its approach to teaching. This change is primarily the result of sustained focus on reforming two heavily coordinated sequences, Applied Calculus and Calculus. Initially catalyzed by pilot projects introducing a flipped-class format to these courses, the reforms led to broader…
