IMPULSE

Our Freshman Year Experience

The UMD IMPULSE faculty team built on the results of several previous successful undergraduate experiments at other universities, such as those at RPI [1] and in the NSF Foundation Coalition [2]. The new program, called IMPULSE (integrated math, physics and undergraduate laboratory science, and engineering) [3,7,8]:

  • Integrated multiple subjects
  • Taught and required teamwork among students and faculty
  • Used active and cooperative learning
  • Encourage formation of learning community of students and faculty
  • Included rigorous assessment to evaluate and improve performance.

Many courses in IMPULSE were developed to exploit a technology-intensive classroom to improve learning.
