When learning calculus at college level, students often encounter difficulties overcoming word problems, or extracting mathematics from the context of a certain subject. The instructors also encounter time limitations to teaching with sufficient depth, coverage and illustrations.
The Microtutorials in Mathematics project team at UCR has conceived a new approach to producing supplementary instructional materials. It produces a collection of microtutorials as supplementary instructional and learning materials. The intent is to assist the students and instructors to overcome such difficulties and pressures, with the help of online learning. The students could use them freely on any topics of their choice. The videos are produced with follow-up questions to enable instructors to flip their classrooms if desired.
UCR's mission is to provide educational success for underrepresented and first-generation college students.
The National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences - Math Alliance - is a community of math sciences faculty and students with the following goals:
- To increase the number of doctoral degrees in the mathematical sciences among groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in those fields.
- To improve placement of students from these groups in doctoral programs in disciplines that recruit undergraduate mathematics majors.
- To increase the number of Phds from these groups who enter the professoriate in the mathematical sciences as well as other appropriate professions.
- To increase funded research collaborations among faculty members at the universities with mathematical sciences doctoral programs and faculty members at colleges and universities focused on undergraduate students.
- To foster the growth of a community of mathematical scientists that promotes a diverse workforce.
If you are interested in becoming a Math Alliance Scholar, please feel free to contact Dr. Fred Wilhelm. The benefits include access to Math Alliances Facilitated Graduate Applications Process and possible funding to go the the Alliance's Field of Dreams conference.
