Explicitly Engaging Students with Learning Outcomes in a Flipped, Hybrid Geometry Course
One possible way to structure a GeT course around student learning outcomes is through a flipped, hybrid course where the mathematical topics, such as axiomatic systems and parallelism, are interwoven with learning goals and outcomes so that students engage with them explicitly. I’ll discuss benefits and challenges of this course structure as well as the related activities. More information is available at https://appstate.edu/~

Sarah J. Greenwald is a professor of mathematics at Appalachian State University. Greenwald earned a PhD in Riemannian geometry from the University of Pennsylvania and a BS in mathematics from Union College. Investigating connections between mathematics and society, Greenwald has won awards for teaching, scholarship and service, including as College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Teacher of the Year. As an AWM Fellow, Greenwald was cited for “creative and effective efforts to spark interest in mathematics among young people, especially girls… extensive contributions to advancing women in mathematics through writing, lectures and working with professional societies… and mentorship of students.
