Doing Less, Better

Talk Abstract: 
Faced with growing demand from very different student populations, The College of Idaho developed a three-year plan to redesign its entry level mathematics courses. Our objective two years ago was to streamline the sequence of courses for our bimodal audience of students with and without calculus in high school. The redesigned courses Applied Calculus and Single Variable Calculus utilize ideas from the flipped classroom approach, such as daily reading questions due before class and in-class group activities. We will discuss strategies we tried and what seems to work for us.
