Integrated Research Projects
The department periodically applies for research grants that involve faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. This year the Department was awarded a grant for the MCTP: Colorado Advantage proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF). For more information on this grant, please see NSF-MCTP.
What are Orals and Why Participate? Mathematics Education research proclaims the importance of mathematical discourse in helping students to master difficult concepts. Teachers often report that they never “really” understood some concepts until they taught them. Perhaps what they are saying is that they really understood the concepts when they were able to explain them to someone else. We find that oral assessments provide students that opportunity to explain concepts to their fellow students. For more information on oral assessments please see Oral Assessments.
