Evaluation of Flipped Mathematics Courses Knowledge Retention
Grace Vincent; Perry Gillespie, Ph.D.

A flipped learning approach has become more popular as technological advancements have reached into the educational sphere. This increasingly favored instructional format has key characteristics that allow increased interaction between professors and students. With the migration to this new pedagogy, instructors have notice increased performance within the course in comparison to a traditionally taught course. However, this case study aims to evaluate the knowledge retention in a flipped learning environment for a college level pre-calculus algebra and trigonometry courses using a simple survey design. Moreover, this study compared the flipped environment and a traditional learning format using course surveys for examining student success in advanced mathematics courses, primarily advanced Calculus courses.
