Accepted pending minor revision today! So I'll definitely post it once we sort out the minor revision.

Well i did learn how to drive a zamboni recently so in the grand scheme of things that makes dereds and well named "accomplishments" look small.

Re: Official RGT random **** thread

hey guys random news I can't tell my family (middle of night with time change) and can't tell anyone else (not officially signed yet) but I can't ****ing sleep and am idly browsing the forums and so you get to be among the first people to know I got a new job and am moving back to my home city!

I'm Canadian but have been away from my home city for masters/phd and have been an assistant professor (teaching stream) in math in the US for a few years now. The new job is very nearly identical tenure track teaching focused faculty position at a decent university but most importantly where all my and my wife's family lives. We have a 1.5 year old now, and the pull to come home has been huge. I really love my current position and will sorely miss it, but just about all the things I love about it are present in the new position so it is pretty much purely additive (well except housing is expensive af in canada).

A couple on this forum may appreciate this, but a big part of my "story" these days is about embracing active learning in mathematics where we try to develop transferable reasoning skills and conceptual understanding as complimentary to procedural fluency in subjects like calculus. So at my current position I and another colleague really led a top to bottom reform of most of the gateway courses from learning objectives through to pedagogy....my sense of the new position is they mainly hired me because of this and aren't quite there yet but really want to move in this direction as well so I'm pretty pumped about that.

Ok enough of my ramblings

Congratulations! And keep fighting the fight to break the cycle of math-hating because of bad pedagogy!

Re: Official RGT random **** thread

ha indeed! I've actually being giving the ATMI survey pre and post across all calc sections in some of my sotl research and....uh....it isn't ****ing pretty. I guess I can count "I destroy students' love of mathematics a little bit less than the traditional lecturers do" a win?

Are they getting significantly worse over the semester, or are they simply not getting better?

I'm of the mindset that you cannot change 12+ years of negative perceptions and swing it positive in one semester. So I'd take any positive movement as a win.

I generally agree, and also what's possible depends on the slice of students. Engineering students (predominantly taken AP calc from HS at our institution) come in with fairly positive and fairly fixed attitudes in general. Nevertheless, the shift from AP calc to university calc can really hurt (or maybe solidify) a students attitudes towards mathematics. Also students from disciplines with lower average ACT scores tend to have larger drops in applied calculus and calculus and "no change" is a great result for these students. But it also depends on the metric being discussed. For instance, we saw active learning pedagogies can hold the line on confidence in mathematics while still having falling enjoyment of mathematics. A big question for us is what can be done in lower level courses like QR, where attitudes towards mathematics are in some sense more central to the broader course outcomes than they are for engineers.

For some discussion of what the national picture looks like, I presume you are familiar with the MAA national study, but in case not a short summary of this is here: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.5951...n_tab_contents

Complex societies precede moralizing gods throughout world history. Pretty interesting data.
