Dissemination

University of Idaho

How would you assess the transferability of the re-design approach you employed to new subject areas or disciplines?

We are in the process of having conversations with other disciplines and faculty responsible for other math courses to explore ways that our experience may be helpful in the implementation of technology into the course designs of those other areas.

How are you disseminating the re-design among your colleagues?

  • We have made numerous presentations to representatives from colleges and universities in the Idaho-Washington area, politicians, government officials and industry leaders including approximately a dozen Idaho legislators, the Governor of Idaho, a Deputy Director of the United States Department of Education, CEOs and other important leaders from such companies as Micron and Hewlett Packard. These presentations consist of an overall discussion of the philosophy and execution of the new course design, a tour of the Polya Math Learning Center and a description of future needs of the project. All of the presentations have been met with great enthusiasm. Typical of the reactions is, “I only wish I could have taken this course this way!

  • A team from the University of Idaho gave a presentation at the state annual meeting of the Idaho Council of Teachers of Mathematics in Boise, Idaho on October 5, 2001.
  • Monte Boisen is organizing a session at the regional MAA meeting in Portland, Oregon in June 2002 on teaching pre-calculus using technology. The University of Idaho will make a presentation about the project as one of the talks in the session.
