Title:
Development of Inquiry-Based Multivariable Calculus Course in Flipped Classroom

Speaker:      
YoungGon Bae

Position:
Doctoral student, Program in Mathematics Education (PRIME)

Abstract:
In this presentation, I will introduce our project on developing a multivariable calculus course in the flipped classroom. In flipped classrooms, traditional lectures are replaced by online video lectures, and a variety of learning activities can be assigned in the classroom. In this project, we developed educational materials for flipped classroom including video lectures and inquiry-based classroom activities with using technological tools such as 3D graphing software. This presentation will focus on (1) the instructional design for a flipped classroom focused on inquiry-based learning and (2) the students' reasoning in classroom discourse in terms of mathematical argumentation.

About the Speaker:
YoungGon Bae is currently a doctoral student in the Program in Mathematics Education (PRIME) at Michigan State University. He received a Bachelor’s and a Master's Degree in Mathematics at Yonsei University, South Korea, and worked on collegiate mathematics educational research at Seoul National University, South Korea. Also, YoungGon has taught mathematics including calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations at Republic of Korea Naval Academy for three years. His current research interest is how to improve collegiate mathematics curriculum and instruction through adopting inquiry-based learning and technological tools. He is currently working on researches aimed at exploring and improving math courses including geometry for pre-service teachers and proof courses for math majors.
