Using Conceptests in Single and Multivariable Calculus

Using Conceptests in Single and Multivariable Calculus

ConcepTests were developed by Eric Mazur as a method of improving student conceptual understanding and scores on concept examinations in physics. This has been replicated in other science areas (see http://galileo.harvard.edu), now including calculus. Our ConcepTests are usually conceptual, multiple-choice questions, but include some True/False, and some free response questions as well. They are designed to promote the discussion and learning of mathematical concepts during a calculus class, and not as a means of testing students for a grade. Target Audience: 2-4 Year College Faculty/Administrators
