DESCRIPTION:Simone Deparis\nPrior research shows that time pressure impact
s the way students address problem-solving\, revealing a tendency to rever
t to the use of habitual and intuitive problem-solving rather than attempt
ing to work through a more procedural approach. Time pressure can also inc
rease anxiety among ‘maths anxious’ students\, negatively impacting on
their performance. These impacts are likely to be strongest among those w
ho have not previously studied Mathematics to a high level in high school\
, as is the case with many non-traditional STEM students.\n\nIn this sessi
on of lunch&LEARN\, Simone Deparis\, Adjunct Professor at the Mathematics
Section and Executive Director of the Propaedeutic centre\, will present t
he results of a study building upon previous work done at EPFL on the effe
ct of the Flipped Classroom in Linear Algebra\, using different students a
nd a different mathematics class (Analysis rather than Linear Algebra) whi
le giving extra 30 minutes during the exam.\n\nDeparis will go over the fi
ndings which form a basis for reducing time pressure on students in the fi
rst year exams\, enabling non-traditional STEM students to better demonstr
ate their learning in the exam.\n\n
