Description

This research project operated in two phases. In the first phase, we read relevant literature, reviewed sample exams from MATH 091 and 092, and set up a framework for mass data collection. The second phase involved the actual collection and analyzation of the data. The data collection involved reviewing student work on specific problems and recording the data within the designed framework. The final data analysis identified which misconceptions students most commonly hold at this stage. This data was used in revising the curriculum of MATH 091 and 092.
