OShaughnessy, J. – PRIMUS, 2019

This paper investigates the advantages of using a two-step homework system. First, technology is used to collect and grade traditional homework. Then, students are expected to present and explain problems from their assignments in class. Several versions of implementation are discussed for different course levels and sizes. Through these methods,…

McCune, Lori – PRIMUS, 2019

In the age of the internet, it is increasingly difficult to write homework assignments in a way that encourages students to struggle with a problem on their own without seeking answers from other sources. This is especially true in lower-level courses, where students often start with the attitude of "I can't do this." In this article, I…

Anderson, Jacqueline – PRIMUS, 2019

A common challenge among mathematics professors is to structure a course so that students are motivated to complete enough work to master the material without creating an unmanageable grading workload. We will discuss a strategy that the author devised to successfully confront this challenge (after many other failed attempts): using online surveys…

Jordan, Daniel R. – PRIMUS, 2019

Workshops can be a powerful tool to support students as they develop proof-writing skills. In a workshop, each student writes a proof, provides feedback on other students' work, and reflects on critiques from peers. Workshops can be used in any class that emphasizes writing proofs or other forms of mathematical writing. They are highly efficient…

Garaschuk, Kseniya M.; Cytrynbaum, Eric N. – PRIMUS, 2019

Active learning techniques, such as peer instruction and group work, have been gaining a lot of traction in universities. Taking a natural next step in re-evaluating current practices, many institutions recently started experimenting student-centred group exams. In order to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of collaborative assessments, we…

Trenholm, Sven; Peschke, Julie; Chinnappan, Mohan – PRIMUS, 2019

The use of fully online instruction has been proliferating in higher education. In undergraduate mathematics, arguments about the effectiveness of fully online instruction have been met with contrasting claims about its potential. Some assert that fully online instruction can promote a deeper and richer conceptual understanding of mathematical…

Bliss, Karen M.; Galluzzo, Benjamin J.; Kavanagh, Kathleen R.; Skufa, Joseph D. – PRIMUS, 2019

To promote and facilitate the teaching of math modeling throughout the K-16 setting, the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics recently published the GAIMME (Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Mathematical Modeling Education) Report. This paper provides insight into how the…

Larripa, Kamila; Mazzag, Borbala – PRIMUS, 2019

This article proposes that in addition to training teams of students to succeed in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling, the contest and the preparation for competition can be successfully used as a framework to teach an auxiliary skill set to undergraduate STEM majors through workshop-style modules. The skills emphasized are collaboration across…

Nabb, Keith; Murawska, Jaclyn – PRIMUS, 2019

The Corvette Problem is a nonroutine investigation, one that provides an authentic context to explore many interrelated calculus ideas. In our years of sharing this problem with students and colleagues, we have found additional topics from the calculus curriculum to have rich interpretations in this environment. The Corvette Problem contextualizes…

Ludwig, Patrice; Tongen, Anthony; Walton, Brian – PRIMUS, 2018

James Madison University faculty team-teach an interdisciplinary mathematical modeling course for mathematics and biology students. We have used two different project-based approaches to emphasize the mathematical concepts taught in class, while also exposing students to new areas of mathematics not formally covered in class. The first method…

Lynch, Frank H.; Page, Breeanna S. – PRIMUS, 2018

This paper uses the lens of a calculus student to examine different solutions to a weekly puzzler from the radio show "Car Talk," hosted by Tom and Ray Magliozzi. The puzzler describes an automobile that is traveling 75 miles per hour and is 75 miles from its destination. The trip is completed by traveling 1 mile at 75 miles per hour, 1…

Sanft, Rebecca; Ziegler-Graham, Kathryn – PRIMUS, 2018

The Mathematics Practicum has been offered at St. Olaf College for over 30 years. The Practicum is a 4-week, January Interim course where three teams of five students work on consulting problems solicited from area businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. These problems have significant mathematical, statistical, and…

Shelton, Therese – PRIMUS, 2018

Mathematical modeling allows flexibility for a project-based experience. We share details of our regular capstone course, successful for virtually 100% of our math majors for almost two decades. Our research-like approach in this course accommodates a variety of student backgrounds and interests, and has produced some award-winning student…

Harwood, R. Corban – PRIMUS, 2018

This article addresses the logistics of implementing projects in an undergraduate mathematics class and is intended both for new instructors and for instructors who have had negative experiences implementing projects in the past. Project implementation is given for both lower- and upper-division mathematics courses with an emphasis on mathematical…

Evans, Riley; Friedman, Jane; McGrath, Lynn; Myers, Perla; Ruiz, Amanda – PRIMUS, 2018

Although the number of bachelor's degrees in the U.S. awarded to women has gone up, engagement of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) continues to be low. This paper presents a project-based learning program, informed by education research best practices, designed to provide research experiences to female students…
