Abstract

Recently a new method of instruction, the flipped classroom, has gained national publicity. In this model, lectures are watched outside of the class and time in class is spent practicing and applying the material. Despite this publicity, little research has been done on this method. This study explored how community college students perceived the flipped classroom approach and their learning opportunities after completing a flipped Statistics I course. Results suggested that students preferred this method of instruction over in-class lectures, believed it improved their conceptual understanding of statistics, would prefer taking more flipped mathematics classes and would recommend taking flipped mathematics classes to their peers.
