Abstract / Synopsis
We explore using a “Study Challenge” to help students become active studiers in mathematics courses. We describe how a Study Challenge works and how we implemented it in calculus and differential equations courses. We discuss qualitative reactions from students who accepted the Study Challenge, which suggest that this might be a useful tool for students’ to add to their examination preparation toolbox. Finally, we offer some suggestions for implementing a Study Challenge within the mathematics classroom.
