Teaching

University of Illinois

All calculus sections are groupwork-based active learning.

The Merit Scholars program focuses on retaining students from underrepresented minorities or rural schools, as well as those who have not declared a major and women in engineering. Discussion sections meet for two hours twice a week instead of the standard one hour. Teaching assistants create the group work assignments for these sections. Students receive a grade for their Merit section in addition to their lecture grade.

Courses at the Summer Illinois Math Camp focus on hands-on, discovery based learning and topics not typically covered in the K-12 curriculum. These courses are designed and taught by graduate students, with help from undergraduate assistant instructors who have taken a math Merit course.The graduate student instructors are also responsible for teaching the undergraduates the necessary math and for helping the undergraduates learn how to teach the campers.
