Clickers and Classroom Voting in a Transition to Advanced Mathematics Course
Clickers and classroom voting are used across a number of disciplines in a variety of institutions. There are several papers that describe the use of clickers in mathematics classrooms such as precalculus, calculus, statistics, and even differential equations. This paper describes a method of incorporating clickers and classroom voting in a Transition to Advanced Mathematics course. The clicker questions were used to initiate small group discussions in order to improve mathematical communication skills of the students. Student and instructor reactions to the clickers and group discussions are given.
