OPEN Math: Active Learning in Differential Equations Inspired by Modeling
Jun 5, 2023 11:00 AM (ET)
Jun 9, 2023 05:00 PM (ET)
Participants will learn to incorporate mathematical modeling into the teaching of differential equations using research-based, learner-centered pedagogy that is known to support gains in self-efficacy, proficiency, and interest in mathematics. Participants will receive a wide range of specific, robust modeling activities that foster an equitable and inclusive environment for students. Workshop facilitators will discuss the pedagogical advantages of a modeling-first approach and indicate a variety of ways to incorporate these activities into an active classroom, and participants will engage with technology that facilitates active learning. During this intense four-day workshop, participants will experience activities as learners before collaboratively preparing (using class-tested materials provided) and practice-teaching a module in our supportive workshop environment. Participants are invited to continue their involvement beyond the workshop by engaging with the community and free repository of Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations (SIMIODE). As a supplemental aid to using the vast repository of materials, participants will receive a free copy of the low-cost textbook, Differential Equations: Modeling the Real World. We welcome anyone with strong interest at any level of experience with differential equations or active learning.
Therese Shelton, Patrice Tiffany, Brian Winkel, Leigh Noble, Rosemary Farley, and Kurt Bryan
