The PRogramme of Innovation in Mathematics Education (PRIME) is all about redesigning mathematics courses for engineers. As such it is part of the Interfaculty Teaching from the department of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) at TU Delft.
The aim of this innovation is to redesign the current math courses for non-math students to a blended learning cycle design intended to:
- improve study results,
- improve connection between mathematics and engineering,
- increase students active participation and motivation.
Courses are designed following the PRIME-cycle: prepare, participate, practice.
In 2014, the forerunner of PRIME started with a pilot of the course Analyse 1 at the faculty of Civil Engineering. This pilot has been made possible with financial support out of the “studievoorschotmiddelen”. More background information can be found here.
