Changing Core Mathematics
David C. Arney, Donald B. Small
Mathematical Association of America, 2002 - Mathematics - 181 pages
Mathematicians, engineers, and physical scientists discuss how the first two years of a core college mathematics program should change over the next five to ten years to meet the mathematical needs of partner disciplines and society's needs arising from globalization and the information age. They examine issues related to goals and content, anticipated advances in technology, and new instructional techniques, and make recommendations for future course designs that emphasize modeling, inquiry, and conceptual understanding. Arney is dean of the School of Mathematics and Sciences at the College of Saint Rose. Small is on the faculty of the Department of Mathematics at the United States Military Academy.
