A New Instructor-Student Collaboration Model that Applies to College Mathematics Teaching
Dr. Shtukar, U

A new instructor-student collaboration model was created to stimulate productive student activity and improve student performance in all of the mathematics classes offered at the college and university level. This model integrates both the instructor-student and student-instructor directions into a single process. The model consists of two traditional methods (i.e., make-up tests/quizzes plus individual help for each student) and three new nontraditional methods that were based on students’ notes. This article addressed the efficacy of the collaboration model by comparing students’ final grades from the classes that employed the collaboration model with those from the same classes that did not employ this model. Students’ final grades from the classes that implemented the new model were better than those from the classes that did not utilize this model.
