The SUMMIT-P Project:A national consortium promoting authentic collaboration between mathematics and partner disciplines

  • Webinar Summary: This work is based on the MAA/CRAFTY Curriculum Foundations Project, in which groups of faculty from over 20 disciplines described their ideas about the mathematical needs of students in their majors. The SUMMIT-P colleges represent a diverse cross section of institutions of higher education, including research universities, liberal arts colleges, HBCUs, and community colleges. Each college is collaborating with colleagues from other disciplines, including engineering, physics, business, nursing, social work, and others. Mathematics courses being examined as part of the SUMMIT-P work include, for example, college algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, and differential equations. The common theme is the utilization of the Curriculum Foundations recommendations and the extensive collaboration with the disciplinary partners on both the determination of the wishes of the partner disciplines and the actual changes in the courses.
  • Hosts: Susan Ganter, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Victor Piercey, Ferris State University
  • Presenters: SUMMIT-P Team from Lee University (Caroline Maher-Boulis, John Hearn, Jason Robinson, Bryan Poole)
  • Webinar 1: The first webinar in the series was designed for mathematics faculty who are considering extensive collaboration with faculty from one or more partner disciplines and focused on one or more mathematics course. It provided highlights from the Curriculum Foundations reports, and then provide specific information about approaches taken at one SUMMIT-P institution. The presenters highlighted SUMMIT-P models for interdisciplinary interactions that have proven particularly effective for the consortium's participating institutions. These include "fish bowls" through which faculty from a partner discipline respond to a Curriculum Foundations report and discuss the extent to which those recommendations are relevant to the students at their institution. These discussions are observed by mathematics faculty who do not participate until the conclusion of the fish bowl experience.
  • Webinar 2: The second webinar was designed for mathematics faculty who participated in the first webinar and are now joined by faculty from one or more partner disciplines. If you are interested in participating in the SUMMIT-P project, please email Susan Ganter (susan.ganter@erau.edu) for more information!
