Getting ready for Mathfest

At Mathfest, Chrissy Safranski and I will be leading a minicourse titled “Teaching Active Calculus using Runestone” that will introduce participants to the Runestone platform. Runestone is a Learning Engineering Analytics Platform that allows students to log in to their book, to save their work in it, and to have their instructor be able to see and record their progress. Specifically, we have a Runestone version of Active Calculus Single Variable that has all of the Preview Activities instantiated in WeBWorK, along with a larger collection of WeBWorK exercises in each section; all of these can then be “assigned” within Runestone, and the students can do all of that work right inside the HTML version of their text. Once we’ve delivered the minicourse, I’ll post more information here along with some links to resources.
