Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Jerome Epstein
I discuss the development and validation of an instrument known as the Calculus Concept  Inventory (CCI). Patterned closely on the highly successful Force Concept Inventory (FCI, physics), it tests conceptual understanding of the most basic principles of calculus. Results are discussed, and the future plan that it will serve as a tool for the evaluation of teaching methodologies, as the FCI has been in physics.
