CUPM Subcommittee on CALCULUS REFORM AND THE FIRST TWO YEARS (CRAFTY)

In the mid-1980's reports appeared concerning discrete mathematics and calculus in the first two years of college mathematics. This committee is charged with monitoring ongoing developments with the intention of eventually making general recommendations concerning the first two years of collegiate mathematics.

**CRAFTY Working Groups: Descriptions**

**Curriculum Foundations Project:**

**CF Planning Committee and CF Support Working Group.**
**The CUPM has undertaken a major review of the undergraduate mathematics
curriculum. As its part of this review, CRAFTY is organizing workshops
with members of the partner disciplines. The purpose of these workshops
is to determine the mathematical needs that these disciplines have from
the first two years of collegiate mathematics instruction. The information
is conveyed primarily via reports produced by each workshop in response
to a list of questions provided by the Curriculum Foundations Planning
Committee. The workshops are hosted and funded by a variety of educational
and research institutions across the country. A Curriculum Conference will
be organized as the final event in the project, pulling together the reports
from all the workshops and producing recommendations for inclusion in the
CUPM Curriculum Initiative.**

**In addition to the Curriculum Foundations Planning Committee, there
is also a Working Group of CRAFTY to give additional support to the project.
It is also intended that a high level Steering Committee will be organized
to provide guidance and a diversity of viewpoints for the project.**

**Calculus Reform Initiatives:**
**Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Calculus Reform.**
**As one of the most heavily funded and widely influential initiatives
in mathematics education in the last thirty years, the calculus reform
movement and its consequences deserve continued monitoring and evaluation.
This working group seeks to promote and stimulate such evaluation and reflection.**

**"AFTY" Initiatives:**
**College Algebra.**
**This working group will coordinate CRAFTY’s involvement with the
College Algebra Task Force, organized primarily by the CUPM. It will also
report on the current status of reform efforts in the instruction of college
algebra, and will recommend appropriate initiatives and actions for CRAFTY
to undertake.**

**"AFTY" Initiatives:**
**Linear Algebra / Differential Equations Initiatives.**
**This working group will propose initiatives for CRAFTY to consider
concerning courses that immediately follow calculus. It will also report
on the current status of reform efforts in this area, e.g., what groups
are involved in major efforts, who are the key players, etc.**

**Client Disciplines Initiative.**
**This working group grew out of an NSF grant proposal designed by
Shelly Gordon in the mid 90s. The goal is to increase communication between
mathematics and the partner disciplines, primarily to improve cooperation
and cross-fertilization with regards to the first two years of collegiate
mathematics. Contributed paper sessions organized by this working group
at the January meetings have drawn an enormous number of proposed papers.**

**CRAFTY Web Site.**
**Martin Flashman, a CRAFTY emeritus, is our web site guru. He has
constructed and maintained an impressive "draft" web site which is well-worth
a visit. Besides finding as much information as you could ever want about
CRAFTY, Martin has added useful links to numerous other sites.**
