Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) October 10, 2016
Stevens Institute of Technology is pleased to host the first annual conference: Reimagining Calculus Education on October 28, 2016. (To learn more visit stevens.edu/calculus-reimagined) This leading-edge education conference will offer actionable teaching strategies and tools to improve the success rate of calculus students of all ages. Many high school and college students struggle to learn calculus, often resorting to memorization techniques and never achieving a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts and topics. This can interfere with learning more advanced concepts in many other fields of study. Focused towards math educators, faculty and academic leaders, attendees will walk away from the conference knowing how to successfully nurture critical thinking in their students.
Attendees of the Reimagining Calculus Education conference will learn how to:
- Teach using math educational technology
- Deliver personalized education
- Keep students engaged
- Leverage student online literacies
- Create new options for delivering quality math content
- Pinpoint specific areas of mastery, strength and weakness for each student
- Provide data-grounded evidence of academic growth for each student
The Reimagining Calculus Education conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Stevens campus in Hoboken, N.J. For agenda and speaker information and to register, visit stevens.edu/calculus-reimagined
The Gradarius Learning Platform will be featured at the Reimagining Calculus Education conference. Gradarius was created under the guidance and direction of the esteemed mathematician Dr. Alexei Miasnikov, closely collaborating with colleagues Dr. Sasha Ushakov, Dr. Denis Serbin and Dr. Alex Myasnikov from the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Stevens. This group of scholars became increasingly concerned that students with aptitudes and interests in STEM disciplines struggled with calculus.
