Studying Flipped Mathematics Instruction in Secondary and Postsecondary Contexts

Fri, April 17, 4:05 to 5:35pm, Virtual Room

Session Type: Symposium


Flipped instruction, typically defined as the provision of lecture videos viewed as homework prior to in-class instruction, has largely been teacher led. Because of this teacher initiation, practice has outpaced research. In recent years there has been a sharp increase in the number of studies examining flipped instruction as researchers seek to understand its use and potential benefits (and drawbacks). Flipped instruction is particularly common in mathematics, perhaps because of a tradition of lecture-based instruction in this subject, but the implementations and results are varied. We will present a literature review of studies of flipped mathematics instruction and convene three research teams examining this phenomenon, documenting its variability and its affordances. A discussant’s remarks and audience discussion will be included.
