The WSU Model for Engineering Mathematics Education

The WSU Model for Engineering Mathematics Education

The traditional approach to engineering mathematics education begins with one year of freshman calculus as a prerequisite to subsequent core engineering courses. However, the inability of incoming students to successfully advance through the traditional freshman calculus sequence is a primary cause of attrition in engineering programs across the country. As a result, the WSU model seeks to redefine the way in which engineering mathematics is taught, with the goal of increasing student retention, motivation and success in engineering. The WSU approach begins with the development of a novel freshman-level engineering mathematics course, EGR 101 Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications. Taught by engineering faculty, the course includes lecture, laboratory and recitation... Show More
