Fall 2018

Pre-Calculus - Math 1113
2 sections

This course serves as a preparation for calculus and includes an intensive study of algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions and their graphs.

Calculus 1 for Science & Engineering - Math 2250
1 section

The main topics of this course are the limit and the derivative, understood both conceptually and operationally.  In this class, a student will learn how to use calculus concepts to model and solve typical problems in science and engineering -- and to set up & solve word problems.  The semester concludes with the presentation of the integral in preparation for Math 2260.

As it has shown to be successful in the past, I am utilizing the flipped classroom model in which the general elements of the course are switched -- students watch video lectures (approximately 20 minutes in length) at home and class time is spent working through mathematical exercises.

Calculus 1 for Science & Engineering Online - Math 2250E
1 section

The main topics of this course are the limit and the derivative, understood both conceptually and operationally.  In this class, a student will learn how to use calculus concepts to model and solve typical problems in science and engineering -- and to set up & solve word problems.  The semester concludes with the presentation of the integral in preparation for Math 2260.  Since the course is conducted online, students are required to watch videos explaining the material and complete homework using WebAssign.  Synchronous office hours were held regularly to facilitate class discussion and allow me to guide the students' learning.


Spring 2018

Calculus 2 for Science & Engineering - Math 2260
2 sections

The main topics of this course are integral calculus and infinite sequences and series.
Emphasis is placed on applications of the integral, techniques of integration, and Taylor Series.
The course finishes with a study of calculus in parametric & polar coordinates as well as an introduction to vectors, lines, & planes in three-space.
I employeed the flipped classroom pedagogy for both of my Calculus 2 classes.

The main topics of this course are the limit and the derivative, understood both conceptually and operationally.  In this class, a student will learn how to use calculus concepts to model and solve typical problems in science and engineering -- and to set up & solve word problems.  The semester concludes with the presentation of the integral in preparation for Math 2260.

In order to study the effectiveness of different pedagogical techniques in student understanding and retention, I plan to present the requisite material in different styles (traditional lecture and flipped) in my different classes.  In the flipped classroom model, the general elements of the course are switched -- students watch video lectures (approximately 20 minutes in length) at home and class time is spent working through mathematical exercises.
