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
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=504408
This lesson plan is geared towards third graders. It is a comprehensive lesson plan that deals with Probability. The lesson objective for the students would be to find if an event is likely, unlikely, certain, or impossible. This lesson plan is a modified version of Lesson 2 in the Probability Chapter of the Houghton Mifflin Mathematics Textbook.A+Click Math Skill Self-Study Tests for Grade 1 to 12
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=504906
A+Click Math Self-study Tests and Skill Assessment for Grade 1 to Grade 12. It includes more than 1000 challenging problems and answers and tons of illustrations. The practice tests adapt to student ability. This website has a graduated set of problems, starting from very simple, to quite difficult. To progress to a new level, you have to answer five consecutive questions correctly. The questions are appropriate to elementary students; almost any second grader could answer the easiest. This is a good assessment test without being insulting or frustrating.Applied Math STAIR

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=841278
M-MODEL8 is a full simulation of traditional engineering mechanics homework solutions including free-body diagram construction, variable listing and mathematical modelling. It is a free-form solution unlike other online homework systems that are linear processes based upon multi-choice, short answer, pair matching and etc. responses. M-MODEL8 focusses upon model building and leaves equation solving and answer production, at the discretion of the instructor, to internal equation solvers. An intelligent tutor, hints/tips, helps, grading and error checker systems are always available to students to provide instant feedback, coaching, motivation, reflection and intellectual development. Instructors may use the included authoring tools to modify the provided problems or create their own problems.Using portfolios as an assessment tool
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=490620
Dr Hammond discusses how writing is assessed at Stony Brook and how this assessment has evolved from assessing only the student’s end product to assessing the writing process and the growth of the student’s skills. Portfolio collection, which began at Stony Brook in the late 1970s, has enabled students to gather evidence of this progression. The faculty in the Writing Program work with their students to prepare the students’ portfolios for an external grader (other faculty within the department). Portfolios enable the faculty member to take on a coaching role rather than a grader. The students’ portfolios are judged to check students’ mastery of research skills, organizational skills, paragraphing skills, grammatical and punctuation skills, and choosing an appropriate tone of voice for academic discourse. Portfolios can of course span multiple courses and semesters, enabling students to present their best work to a prospective employer. Electronic portfolios (ePortfolios) allow the students to save material and selectively share components of the portfolio with different audiences.Gene also discusses how writing can help students to understand any subject – even mathematics. He encourages the use writing both to increase and to measure students’ understanding of material in all courses on campus. The Writing Program’s Writing Center staff (tutors) will help students work on their papers in all classes on campus so that faculty across the campus can concentrate on encouraging the best writing habits for their specific disciplines. Gene is joined by Nancy Wozniak who discusses different types and applications of portfolios.
