Professor Nathan Kaplan uses popular websites and online data to generate discussion about the topic of correlation in his math gen ed, "Fat Chance." According to Kaplan, the purpose of the activity is to show students that correlations are everywhere, even in movie rentals, library cards, etc., and part of the era of big data is that companies will know lots of things about people even if they don't tell them.
In Nathan Kaplan's general education course EMR 14, "Fat Chance," students play games to connect the probability concepts learned in lecture to some fun activities that the students are familiar with. On some broader level, the goal is to see that probability is at work in lots of situations outside of the somewhat artificial classroom setting.
In Math 152, Professor Paul Bamberg and his co-teacher structured the class in a seminar format, where students did mini-lectures for each other in class and critiqued each other content as well as style.
Every aspect of Math 121 is highly interactive: Students spend most of classtime working in groups on problems and they then present their work and discuss as a class. Each student is responsible for some part of the in-class problems.
