First-Year University Mathematics Across Canada

Location: 

University of Alberta

Description: 

The goal of this conference is to drastically rethink the first-year university mathematics curriculum. What skills and knowledge do we want students to develop and gain in mathematics courses? What pedagogical methods are most effective? How can we create an active learning environment in large, first-year mathematics courses? Is the technical mastery of calculus, linear algebra and statistics really the most important learning objective of first year mathematics courses? This conference will bring together Canadian university mathematics faculty at all levels to discuss and actively engage in a much needed mathematics curriculum renewal process.
