Resources for Classroom Voting in Mathematics
Question Libraries and Useful Web Pages
- Calculus: The Cornell GoodQuestions Project, has developed and tested a library of questions for classroom voting in Calculus.
- Linear Algebra: Maria Terrell's webpage has more resources, including a set of voting questions for linear algebra.
- Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Series, Sequences, Difference Equations, Multivariable Calculus, Calculus, Precalculus: Our Project MathQuest page has links to the libraries of questions that we use here at Carroll College in all of these courses.
- Statistics: Roxy Peck's collection of classroom voting questions for statistics is part of the sets of questions that accompany the texts: Statistics: The Exploration and Analysis of Data, Roxy Peck and Jay Devore, 6th edition, Brooks/Cole Cengage Learning 2008; Introduction to Statistics and Data Analysis, Roxy Peck, Chris Olsen and Jay Devore, 3rd Edition, Brooks/Cole Cengage Learning 2008.
- Statistics: Bruce Atwood has some good materials and a library of questions for using classroom voting in statistics.
- Statistics: The Website for Clickers in Statistics Courses from Teri Murphy and her colleagues at the University of Oklahoma has over eighty clicker questions.
- Statistics: In addition to this library of classroom voting questions for statistics, Derek Bruff at Vanderbilt has written this useful guide to using classroom voting, and authored the book Teaching with Classroom Response Systems.
- College Algebra: This library of 36 questions was developed
by Lee Gibson at the University of Louisville.
- College Algebra: This library of 20 questions in PowerPoint format was developed by Mark Schlatter at Centenary College.
- Calculus and Multivariable Calculus: Adam Lucas describes his use of clickers at Saint Mary's College of Califoria, including his conceptests.
- Multivariable Calculus: Mark Schlatter has written and tested a library of voting questions for multivariable calculus -- described here and his library of multivariable ConcepTests is here
- Liberal Arts Mathematics: Ray McGivney and Jean McGivney-Burelle, at Hartford University, have developed this library of questions, on the topics of voting, simulation, recursion, and graphs.
- Bridge to Higher Mathematics & Group Theory: Patti Frazer Lock has developed libraries of questions for her Bridge to Higher Mathematics course, and her Group Theory course. These are in PowerPoint, and set up for InterWrite PRS clickers.
- David O. Lomen has a page of resources for classroom voting in mathematics.
