Sears, Ruthmae; Kersaint, Gladis; Burgos, Fernando; Wooten, Rebecca – PRIMUS, 2019
This article describes reflections of two mathematicians and a mathematics teacher educator who collaborated on the development and implementation of courses (probability and statistics connections, number concept connections, and middle school mathematics methods) for middle school mathematics preservice teachers. The instructors of the courses,…

Hirst, H.; Palmer, K. – PRIMUS, 2019
The authors describe working with partner disciplines during the process of updating mathematics courses for the general education quantitative literacy requirement. The conversations resulted in significant changes to the business calculus course and a rich listing of applications to be incorporated into the college algebra course from technical…

Karst, Nathaniel; Slegers, Rosa – PRIMUS, 2019
Many of the applied mathematics courses we teach touch upon a range of rich and important ethical issues -- issues that, for a number of reasons, are rarely openly discussed in class. In this work, we describe a sequence of activities co-designed and co-taught by philosophy and mathematics faculty in the hopes of bridging the divide between the…

White, David – PRIMUS, 2019
In an increasingly data-driven world, facility with statistics is more important than ever for our students. At institutions without a statistician, it often falls to the mathematics faculty to teach statistics courses. This paper presents a model that a mathematician asked to teach statistics can follow. This model entails connecting with faculty…

Greer, M. L. – PRIMUS, 2019
"Mathematics Across the Sciences" is an applications-based course designed to strengthen students' mathematical skills in preparation for calculus or for a major in the sciences. Its development relied heavily on input from faculty members in several science departments. This article describes the course; many of the scientific…

Pinter, Mike; Jones, Linda – PRIMUS, 2019
We describe a successful collaboration between mathematics and psychological science faculty members to create a learning community for our students that linked sections of introductory mathematical reasoning and psychological science courses. The students in our learning community were in their second or third semester. The learning community is…

Fisher, Forest; Warner, Jared; Mickelson, Nate – PRIMUS, 2019
Gentrification is a complex issue with very real repercussions for urban youth. Games make learning fun and provide a way for students to explore complex systems through recursive play. We describe a board game designed to help students explore ratios and proportional reasoning while simultaneously engaging the causes and effects of…

Dame, L.; Aryal, B.; Huq, A.; Prat-Resina, X. – PRIMUS, 2019
Students entering health sciences programs may face challenges on their road to successful completion and possible entry to medical school in the area of preparedness in quantitative skills. At our institution, faculty analyzed evidence of these challenges including performance on the ACT Math Test, an in-house math placement test and quantitative…

Cardetti, Fabiana; LeMay, Steven – PRIMUS, 2019
In this article we present the results of a study focused on engaging students in argumentation to support their growth as mathematical learners, which in turn strengthens their science learning experiences. We identify five argumentation categories that promote the learning of argumentation skills and enrich mathematical reasoning at the…

Diaz Eaton, C.; Highlander, H. C.; Dahlquist, K. D.; Ledder, G.; LaMar, M. D.; Schugart, R. C. – PRIMUS, 2019
Despite widespread calls for the incorporation of mathematical modeling into the undergraduate biology curriculum, there is lack of a common understanding around the definition of modeling, which inhibits progress. In this paper, we extend the "Rule-of-Four," initially used in calculus reform efforts, to a "Rule-of-Five"…

Dray, Tevian; Gire, Elizabeth; Kustusch, Mary Bridget; Manogue, Corinne A.; Roundy, David – PRIMUS, 2019
Calculus, as commonly taught, describes certain operations on explicit functions, but science relies on experimental data, which is inherently discrete. In the face of this disparity, how can we help students transition from lower-division mathematics courses to upper-division coursework in other STEM disciplines? We discuss here our efforts to…

Sears, Ruthmae; Hopf, Frances; Torres-Ayala, Ana; Williams, Casey; Skryzpek, LesLaw – PRIMUS, 2019
We describe how faculty and staff used improvement science design Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles and engaged in interdisciplinary conversations in an effort to improve students' performance in introductory mathematics courses. This initiative started with College Algebra a course with a large enrollment of students that had a high failure rate.…

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…
