  6. Browsing Your Way to Better Teaching

    31 May 2015 | Articles and Publications

    We describe the use of browsing and searching (in libraries, on-line, inside sources, at meetings, in abstracts, etc.) as a way to stimulate the teacher of undergraduate mathematics, specifically in differential equations. The approach works in all other areas of mathematics. Browsing...

  7. Sylvanus Thayer Flipped Out Method Ahead of Its Time - JMM 2014

    30 May 2015 | Presentations

    Sylvanus Thayer is dead, but the Thayer Method of teaching – modified as with all things – lives on at West Point. We discuss how students come to class prepared from reading and attempted scaffolded activities before class and how that energizes the classroom activities and...
