SOTL Presentation: The Flipped Classroom In A Terminal College Mathematics Course for Liberal Arts Students

Come hear the results of Christina Carter\’s SoTL study of flipped classrooms on Tuesday, November 7th from 12:15-1:30 p.m. in Butler Library 181B. The primary purpose of this study was to assess the effect of flipping the classroom on final exam scores in a terminal general education mathematics course for a diverse population. A quasi-experimental design was used to examine 13 sections of each pedagogy (flipped/traditional) were taught by the same 7 instructors. 632 students participated. Mixed model analysis controlled incoming GPA, Math-SAT, and demographics. Flipped sections scored an expected 5.8 percentage points higher than traditional (p = 0.02). One of her surprising findings is that flipped classrooms benefited some student groups over others. In particular, she found that students of color tended to benefit more from flipped models than did white students. Flipping the classroom is associated with improved student performance, particularly among black students.
