Project MOSAIC and M-casts

Last week I had the privilege of dropping in on part of the MAA PREP Workshop at Calvin College that was led by Randy Pruim (Calvin), Nick Horton (Smith), Eric Marland (Appalachian State), and Danny Kaplan (Macalester) that was connected to their ongoing Project MOSAIC (http://mosaic-web.org/).  The focus of their project is promoting more modeling, statistics, and computation in the teaching of mathematics; the emphasis of the workshop was on promoting a modeling perspective particularly in calculus (more on the workshop is available at http://prep2012.mosaic-web.org/).

A great resource to investigate is their growing collection of “M-casts”, which are something between screencasts and TED Talks, with lots of different great ideas: http://test.causeweb.org/wiki/mosaic/index.php/Mcast-schedule.
