Oct 17, 2017: Teaching Quantitative Reasoning via Department-Specific Problem-Solving Courses

28 February 2018

Different STEM departments have designed different problem-solving courses to address the needs of students who might need extra support with quantitative reasoning skills. The structure of these courses varies based on the goals of the course and curriculum constraints within the home department. Faculty from Math, Chemistry, Biology, and Physics will share what they are doing, why they are doing it that way, and what improvement their courses seem to have for the target students. 

Marty Baylor, Associate Professor of Physics

Deanna Haunsperger, Professor of Mathematics

Dani Kohen, Professor of Chemistry

Jennifer Wolff, Associate Professor of Biology
