ABSTRACT

One of the hallmarks of reform mathematics classes is that students are actively involved in the learning process. They perform experiments, they collect data, they work on projects with other students, they conduct and write up labs. This panel, consisting of one faculty member and three students, will discuss some of the ways in which students have become active participants in their mathematics classes here at Hood College.
