Abstract

This in-progress study will present a case study concerning the use of a wiki system with undergraduate and graduate students to develop a collaboratively authored web-based textbook. Participants include undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in a mathematics teaching methods course in which students worked collaboratively to develop a web-based mathematics textbook to be used in a high school mathematics course. Mathematics content and activities were developed using a wiki authoring website and field-tested with high school students. The undergraduate and graduate students reviewed a video of their lesson and further edited the wiki textbook. Data are currently being collected, including both survey responses and interview sessions, to evaluate student response to collaboration, learning, and perceptions of the value of this activity.
