The Math Department has won the Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE) Impact Grant.
Darry Andrews, Director of the MSLC, will lead a team of faculty and staff to improve two crucial courses in the Math curriculum: 1151 and 2415. Math 1151 is the largest course in the department, being the minimum required GEC for the university. Math 2415: Differential Equations is a crucial course that provides foundational concepts for majors in several departments. Both courses will be adapted to enhance distance education alternatives via recorded lectures, Hybrid-Flexible (HyFlex) recitation sections, and other distance methodologies. This project will expand and extend work begun with support of a 2010 Impact Grant under the direction of Elizabeth Miller (as an MSLC staff member). The Fall 2013 Pilot will focus on 1-2 sections of these two courses. In future semesters, the department will extend best practices to sections of all five introductory sequence courses, as well as other offerings.
