NSF Project

During Academic Years 2002-2004, NSF funded a project at SPSU that was designed to test the effectiveness of a so-called blended delivery of core mathematics courses.  This was an attempt to mix traditional lecture format with Web-based materials, software, calculator usage, and collaboration among students in class. Some materials we used are linked here. 

This list continues to evolve as long as I use Web-based materials in my classes.
