Analysis of Undergraduate Mathematics Coursework for Curriculum Design
Dr. Laurie Cavey
Andragogy is the study of adult education and is an area of research that is neglected within university environments. There is a lack of curriculum/documentation analysis relative to increasingly modern formats of upper-division mathematics courses by use of technology and real-world applications. In finding proper modes of transportation for abstract mathematical concepts, teachers can make more informed approaches to teaching and developing curriculums at a university level. A case study will be conducted that compares the final group projects of a mathematical modeling course in alignment with assignment instructions, available documentation, and recorded lectures. This case study will give insight into how epistemology can be implemented into advanced, abstract mathematics courses for adult learners.
