Mathematics is funded for its curriculum innovation
Learning Lab

The Department of Mathematics at University of California Riverside will join the Grand Challenge of California Learning Lab to develop A New Mathematics Gateway. The UCR project’s aim is to re-conceptualize how calculus is taught and to open a wide and inclusive STEM gateway for a diverse future generation of engineers, mathematical scientists, physical and biological scientists, and medical scientists. The development of this new program is guided by mathematical principles and educational research and will utilize spatial learning strategies, supplemented by self-paced micro-tutorial videos, and guided by interactive worksheets. All learning materials are organized to support student engagement at different learning levels through adaptive technology and are formatted to be both scientifically and culturally relevant to students.

This project’s aim is to not only provide a learning environment that is more inclusive but to equitably sustain students’ persistence in engineering, medical or science programs. The materials developed under this project will be shared as Open Educational Resources to benefit all students and educators.
 
This project is a partnership among UC Riverside, Saddleback College, and Yuba College. Over ten faculty members from Mathematics, Education, Biological, and Physical Sciences participate in the development of this project. It is supported by UCR’s XCITE. This project is funded by the California Learning Lab for over $1,260,000 from July 1, 2021 to December 31, 2024.

MICROTUTORIALS

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.

Math Alliance
Math Alliance: Providing educational success to underrepresented and first-generation students is an important part of UCR's mission.
 
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.
