Teaching with Duke's CCP Materials - Summary

Stephanie Fitchett

Students learn by exploring, by recognizing patterns, by generalizing, and by writing about what they've learned. The CCP materials thoughtfully encourage all of these, and my students have consistently responded to that encouragement, meeting and exceeding my expectations in problem-solving, writing mathematics, and working together. If you are looking for interesting, application-rich materials that can be tailored to almost any lower division undergraduate mathematics class; if you want your students to experience mathematics as a science of discovery, practicing the process of experiment, analyze, justify, and generalize; and if you want materials that incorporate pedagogy that has proved successful in facilitating student learning; then the CCP modules are exactly what you are looking for!
