A Scalable Hybrid Introductory ODE Course

Dave Levermore



Introductory ordinary differential equations is the most challenging sophomore level mathematics course for most science, engineering, and mathematics majors. Over the past decade it has evolved into a hybrid course involving large lectures, group work in smaller discussion sections, team-based projects, and on-line material in pdf and video format. The materials developed have also been used by a local community college and by a local high school AP class. It incorporates both formative and summative evaluation. We will describe the course and survey its evolution.
