Student Maypole Experience

Student Maypole Experience

This video was created by the students without any suggestions or help from the professors. The students interviewed each other and edited this video clip. They wanted to show to a non-math audience how fun and meaningful "real" mathematics was for them.

This video was taken in a mathematics for liberal arts class with 15 honors students. It met two times a week for 75 minutes each.

A typical class: Volker Ecke

Discovering the Art of Mathematics

This video shows the main elements of a typical class of Volker Ecke. Notice how
different students are working on different topics and the assignments are
differentiated as well. Because of this there are no whole class discussions
happening in this class period.

This video was taken in a mathematics for liberal arts class with 30 students. It met three times a week for 50 minutes each.

Class Participation: Students talking in their group

Class Participation: Students talking in their group

As part of class participation, students are expected to share their mathematical ideas with other members of their group, to listen carefully to what is being shared, to raise questions if anything is unclear, to agree or disagree (and state reasons), and to keep a record of their findings (and questions) that can be presented to the who class. In this short clip, we witness two students in a discussion about counting the number of ways in which we could relabel a particular 7x7 Latin square. This is about two weeks into the semester.
