Session Description

During the summer of 2016, three mathematics faculty members at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota collaborated on writing a textbook for a first-year math competency course, Elementary Mathematical Ideas. The textbook was written using Overleaf, an online LaTeX-based platform similar to Google Docs, and was implemented as part of a flipped classroom during the 2016−17 school year. We will share lessons learned from such a venture.
