San Francisco State University

This one-day workshop, hosted by the Center for Equity and Excellence in Teaching and Learning at San Francisco State University, will feature time for faculty to plan and share a model lesson for one day in a redesigned course in statistics, the path to calculus (including college algebra), or quantitative reasoning. Opening remarks on equity and student success in mathematics will be provided by James Gray, Chair of the Mathematics Department at the Community College of Aurora in Colorado and Organizational Learning Specialist at the University of Southern California’s Center for Urban Education. Faculty who will oversee or teach mathematics courses incorporating supported instruction in fall 2018, especially those on northern California campuses, are invited to attend. Register by Tuesday, April 24.

Live Webcast

In this webcast, Dr. Karen Givvin, Researcher and Adjunct Professor of Psychology at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), will review multiple research studies conducted at UCLA on how college and university students think about math, leading to the observation that students often see mathematics as a set of calculations or procedures to be applied but not necessarily understood. Studies include in-depth interviews of students as they answer math problems and an intervention designed to move students from instrumental to relational thinking.

This webcast is part of the Transitioning to Co-Requisite Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning series.
