Case study 3: an introductory linear algebra course

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


In this chapter I describe the structure and design of Introduction to Linear Algebra which is taught using active learning techniques. The course consists of ten weekly units, each of which has an overarching learning outcome, and weekly activities. The weekly activities consist of: assigned pre-class activities (reading and a short online quiz); active learning lectures, predominantly using peer instruction; small group workshops; and automatically- and manually-assessed assignments. I also reflect on what has and hasn't worked in terms of large class active learning in our context.
