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, 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
