Congratulations to Katherine Stevenson, leader of the Transforming Course Design project for Math 103 ( Mathematical Methods for Business), who received a CSU Northridge 2008 Honored Faculty Award for Distinguished Teaching. Kate recently reported outstanding final exam results from the project:


"Our average score across 12 sections of math 103 on the common final was 70%. There were 428 students taking the exam, and it was commonly graded on Saturday May 10th. The average this term represents a more than a 20 point improvement over last term. The exams over the last three terms have been similar, but of course not identical. However, even assuming the usual variations on exam difficulty, instructors, and spring/fall student differences, this is a significant improvement."


You can learn more about the methods used in the course redesign in the podcast on the left side of this page.

That's great news. Congratulations Kate! At SDSU, we've also been thinking about how to improve learning in our math courses. It sounds like you've hit on something successful.

If there are many sad stories, share it with the people you trust. Sharing helps people get closer together and you also relieve some of that sadness.
