The linear algebra workshop

 

NSF : DUE 1822247

 

Learning Linear Algebra is an important first step toward advanced mathematical thinking for many STEM students. Research shows that the transition into an abstract and formal presentation of concepts appears to create difficulties for many undergraduate students.

In  1990, the Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group (LACSG) suggested a set of recommendations for the first-year course in Linear Algebra at the undergraduate level (Carlson, Johnson, Lay, & Porter, 1997).  It is timely, a quarter of century later, to revise the existing recommendations, in order to move the field forward. The proposed workshop, titled: National Pedagogical Initiatives on Linear Algebra, is funded by the NSF, will be structured as a facilitated working meeting. The goals of this 2-day workshop include:

(a) Working toward writing research based recommendations for teaching and learning of Linear Algebra; (b) Generating new research questions and ideas that encourage collaboration between research  mathematicians and mathematics educators.
