tandfonline.com – Tennis Anyone? Teaching Experimental Design by Designing and Executing a Tennis Ball Experiment

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”:

Understanding the abstract principles of statistical experimental design can challenge undergraduate students, especially when learned in a lecture setting. This paper presents a concrete and easily replicated example of experimental design principles in action through a hands-on learning activity for students enrolled in an experimental design course. The activity, conducted during five 50-minute classes, requires the students to work as a team to design and execute a simple and safe factorial experiment, and collect and analyze the data. During three in-class design meetings, the students design and plan all aspects of the experiment, including choosing the response and explanatory variables, making a list of needed supplies, creating a randomization schedule with the Minitab DOE utility, and writing a statistical analysis plan. A feasibility study is conducted in the fourth class. During the fifth and last class, the students conduct the experiment. Each student writes a lab report including all background research, methods, analyses, and conclusions, as well as a reflection on their learning experience. Past students’ reflections indicate the active-learning experience was enjoyable, and boosted course engagement and perceived conceptual understanding.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
