4434Engaging different student populations in a service course
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=491812
In addition to teaching courses for math majors, Dr. Sutherland teaches math courses that act as service courses for many departments within the University. These courses are typically taught with multiple lecturers covering the same material in lectures sized between 35 and 260, with total enrollments of up to 1000 students. There are unique challenges to teaching these courses since students are often only present to fulfill general education requirements and mathematics is not a specific interest for them. Scott discusses the pros and cons of integrating discipline specific examples into his classes. He uses multiple digital video cameras to capture the development of math problems on the classroom blackboards and interactive software to show dynamically the effects of changing formulae and values on structures etc. Dr. Sutherland also uses a web based homework management system called WebAssign and has found that the use of clickers has had a significant effect of the performance of his students.Stony Brook University TLT website:https://tlt.stonybrook.edu/FacultyServices/IiE/Lists/Show%20List/DispForm.aspx?ID=29&Source=https%3A%2F%2Ftlt.stonybrook.edu%2FFacultyServices%2FIiE%2FLists%2FShow%2520List%2FSelect%2520Show.aspxMathematics Probability Lesson Plan for 3rd Grade
