Are you looking for new ways to engage your students? Classroom voting can be a powerful way to enliven your classroom, by requiring all students to consider a question, discuss it with their peers, and vote on the answer during class. When used in the right way, students engage more deeply with the material, and have fun in the process, while you get valuable feedback when you see how they voted. But what are the best strategies to integrate voting into your lesson plans? How do you teach the full curriculum while including these voting events? How do you find the right questions for your students?

This collection includes papers from faculty at institutions across the country, teaching a broad range of courses with classroom voting, including college algebra, precalculus, calculus, statistics, linear algebra, differential equations, and beyond. These faculty share their experiences and explain how they have used classroom voting to engage students, to provoke discussions, and to improve how they teach mathematics.

This volume should be of interest to anyone who wants to begin using classroom voting as well as people who are already using it but would like to know what others are doing. While the authors are primarily college-level faculty, many of the papers could also be of interest to high school mathematics teachers.

Important note: Chapters 3 and 4 are reprints of articles from PRIMUS. They are printed in full in the Print-on-Demand (POD) version. We could not get permission to use them in the electronic version so in the PDF those chapters consist of an abstract and a link to the original PRIMUS articles.

Print-on-Demand (POD) books are currently unavailable. We are looking for a new POD printer and hope to make print-on-demand available again soon. We apologize for any inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.
