Hwayeon Ryu, assistant professor of mathematics, has published a paper in PRIMUS that investigates an academic learning community between biology and statistics courses.
Assistant Professor of Mathematics Hwayeon Ryu has published a peer-reviewed article titled “Creating and Assessing an Academic Learning Community between Biology and Statistics Courses” in the journal Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies (PRIMUS).
In this article, Ryu and her former colleague present an academic learning community between ecology and biostatistics courses they developed in 2018. They discuss key criteria that permitted the learning community development, the evidence of its effectiveness, limitations of this study, and ways to improve it.
PRIMUS is a leading journal for exchanging ideas about teaching collegiate mathematics. The journal’s focus is on pedagogical initiatives in college-level mathematics, mathematics education and elementary statistics ranging in scale of application from individual students and courses to curricula and entire programs.
