Video: How to make calculus not boring?

When Martijn Boussé won an EDLAB Education Innovation Grant in 2022, he was convinced that documenting his innovation journey from the start through video would add significant value for both the project itself and his students. 

Using CCCS principles to redesign a math course

Martijn, a math teacher at the Department of Advanced Computing Sciences (FSE) designed three assignments aligned with PBL principles, focusing on collaborative, constructive, contextual, and self-directed (CCCS) learning. His aim was to boost student confidence, interaction, motivation in calculus, and overall performance with these new assessment formats.

This amazing video not only takes you through Martijn's three new assessment methods—a student-generated exam question, an integration competition, and a cross-course assignment—but also beautifully captures how his students reacted.
