Pedagogical Research

Fei Xue, PhD

I am a Co-PI on the NSF grant Supporting and Sustaining Scholarly Mathematics Teaching (S^3MT), which was funded for $583,525 in 2017. This project is to develop a cadre of scholarly teachers who will teach flipped mathematics courses using active learning strategies, and who are committed to conducting and publishing research on the effectiveness of these pedagogical innovations.

I am a Senior Personal of the NSF grant Flipping Calculus (DUE#1245059), $172,136, from 2012 to 2016. We flipped all of our Calculus I sections and part of our Calculus II sections and did pedagogical research about our flipping.
