Student-Centered Approach in Teaching Calculus Based on Moore’s Method

Joseph, Oregon, US – WEBWIRE

A published author and Mathematics Professor Emeritus, Clement Falbo, had the privilege of being one of the students of Robert Lee Moore, the renowned Mathematician who taught at the University of Texas. It was during the semester of 1955-56 where Falbo took notes during his classes with R.L. Moore.

As Falbo pursued teaching himself, he followed the Moore method in teaching calculus which is to allow the students themselves to prove and present the definitions and theorems provided. When he retired, he chose to write textbooks. “First Year Calculus: An Inquiry-Based Learning Approach” is his third textbook.

According to Falbo, he has mentally prepared for this book for 50 years and approximately six years in the actual writing of the book at 30 hours per week. In an interview at his house in Joseph, Oregon, he said: “It’s been in the back of my mind for 50 years and in the front of my mind for six. I’ve been working on it since we moved here.”

He only included the fundamentals of calculus to allow students to discover their own path through calculus. In this book, he uses a question-and-answer approach which he patterns on the Moore Method.

“This book is designed for any teacher who is interested in teaching calculus with a strong student-centered approach,” Falbo added.

Carefully written and well thought of. This book is a must-have for teachers and students alike. Copies of the book are available at
