Spindler, Richard – PRIMUS, 2020
Modeling projects in differential equations and engineering courses create an authentic activity and an opportunity to attain the holy grail of "deeper" learning. However, what do we mean by "deeper" learning and how do we create an environment that encourages that? This article describes a proposal and case study in using…

Soto, Hortensia – PRIMUS, 2020
In this expository piece based on my Haimo teaching award presentation, I share three guidelines that drive my teaching: be informed, be courageous, and have compassion. Becoming an informed mathematics educator requires knowledge about evidence-based teaching practices, which can be acquired via mathematics education research and policy…

Cline, K.; Fasteen, J.; Francis, A.; Sullivan, E.; Wendt, T. – PRIMUS, 2020
We have integrated computer programming instruction into the required courses of our mathematics major. Our majors take a sequence of four courses in their first 2 years, each of which is paired with a weekly 75-minute computer lab period that has a dual purpose of both computationally exploring the mathematical concepts from the lecture portion…

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…

Bieda, Kristen N.; Visnawathan, Aditya; McCrory, Raven; Sikorskii, Pavel – PRIMUS, 2020
Preparing students placing into developmental mathematics for success in undergraduate mathematics and preparing future teachers for the increasing demands of K-12 school settings are both persistent, yet seemingly divergent, problems facing higher education. In this paper, we shed light on a model that attempts to address aspects of each problem…

Karaali, Gizem; Yih, Samuel – PRIMUS, 2020
When first learning how to write mathematical proofs, it is often easier for students to work with statements using the universal quantifier. Results that single out special cases might initially come across as more puzzling or even mysterious. In this article we explore three specific statements from abstract algebra that involve the number…

Schueller, Albert W. – PRIMUS, 2020
Recently, a new source of data with great potential for use in the mathematics classroom has become available. The smartphones in our pockets are packed with sensors. Most phones have at a minimum global positioning, accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope sensors. We give an example of the collection and analysis of global positioning sensor…

Marciniak, M. A. – PRIMUS, 2020
The values and benefits of introducing undergraduate research to the college curriculum are both recognized and advocated in the literature. Although the community college environment may not appear to be favorable for undergraduate research projects in STEM fields, a dynamic and visible group of students, who take their path extremely seriously,…

Ackerman, Michael; Fenton, William E.; Raymond, Anne M. – PRIMUS, 2020
A Mathematics Department Chair plays many roles within the department and within the university as a whole. Facilitating the development and teaching of mathematics services courses requires working with mathematics faculty as well as members of other departments on campus. In this paper, we discuss many issues related to the Department Chair's…

Wakefield, Thomas P. – PRIMUS, 2020
Many colleges and universities recently piloted and adopted the co-requisite model of delivery of developmental mathematics while offering more options for students to fulfill their mathematics requirement. We discuss our process for piloting and ultimately implementing the co-requisite model at our university, provide preliminary data on student…
