Math Matters, Teaching and Scholarship Seminar series organized by the Department of UFV Mathematics and Statistics. It is designed to be a forum where faculty members discuss their teaching practices at both at UFV and beyond.

This weeks focus:  Active learning in mathematics: student learning gains and their perspectives.

Abstract: In this seminar, we will discuss a variety of factors surrounding the effectiveness, implementation and student perceptions of active learning techniques in undergraduate science and mathematics courses.

The suggested readings are: “Flipping the calculus classroom: an evaluative study” by Wes Maciejewski and “Exploring Undergraduates’ perceptions of the use of active learning techniques in science lectures” by Ashley Welsh.  These articles can be found through the UFV Library website or by email to Kseniya Garaschuk kseniya.garaschuk@ufv.ca .

Non-mathematicians are welcome to participate but the focus will be on teaching and learning in Mathematics.
