Exemplary Reviewed Activity Collection

Based on input from participants at the 2017 Teaching Computation in the Sciences Using MATLAB workshop, the Teaching Computation community has begun conducting a peer review of MATLAB® based teaching activities submitted via the Teaching Computation in the Sciences workshops and website, as well as those in the existing SERC collections. Members of the Teaching Computation in the Sciences community review activities using a rubric and set of criteria to calibrate reviewer scoring. There are five elements of each activity that get reviewed: computational, quantitative, and scientific accuracy, alignment of goals, activity, and assessment, pedagogic effectiveness, activity robustness, and completeness of the web page for the activity. The activities that score very highly in these areas become part of the Teaching Computation in the Sciences Using MATLAB Exemplary Collection and are featured below.
