Featured Math Courses
The Math Department faculty has designed innovative, interactive, student-centered Math courses where students can use the latest technology and Math software to complete their assignments. Many of these featured courses also offer one-on-one, in-class assistance from instructors.
Flipped Classroom: A combination of face to face and online coursework. Students watch recorded lectures at home. Lecture videos are easily accessible on your iPhone, Android phone, iPAD, etc. Homework, assignments, and labs are completed in class with the instructor who is available to give students individual help as needed. All tests are taken in class with the instructor. This class meets on all assigned days.
ALEKS: Students meet face to face with an instructor, but class work is completed using a computer program called ALEKS. ALEKS uses artificially intelligent adaptive questioning to find out exactly what the student knows, and designs an individualized learning plan specifically for each student. The instructor is available in the classroom to assist students one on one as needed. All tests (except the final exam) are taken on the computer using ALEKS.
Mathmatica Software: Class lessons are lecture based with in-class demonstrations using iPADs and Mathmatica applets. Mathmatica is a computational software used in scientific, engineering, and mathematical fields. It allows students to manipulate and solve problems with computer code. Lectures are enhanced by lab and home assignments using the Mathematica computer software.
Maple Software/Flipped Classroom: A combination of face to face and online coursework. This software enables students to visualize mathematical concepts and to investigate and solve problems that would be difficult to solve by hand. Students watch videos with lectures and embedded with animation from Maple. Labs and homework are completed in class with computers and instructor guidance. This class meets on all assigned days.
Online Math Courses: The entire course is offered online. All exams are proctored and must be taken on campus.
UH Model: Classes are similar to a traditional lecture model with more technology embedded in the class. This couse uses the same format as that used to teach at the University of Houston.
