Flipping Calculus, a paper co-authored by Jean McGivney-Burelle and Fei Xue (A&S, Mathematics), has been recognized as the Most Cited Article in the journal PRIMUS: Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies, a highly respected and widely circulated journal in mathematics. (See http://www.tandfonline.com/action/showMostCitedArticles?journalCode=upri20 )

Currently, PRIMUS shows 29 CrossRef citations, while Google Scholar indicates it has been cited 88 times since its publication in May, 2013.

In Flipping Calculus, McGivney-Burelle and Xue present the results of a study investigating the impact on student learning of a flipped unit of study in M145 Calculus II.

The research in this paper helped lay the groundwork for the NSF funded project Flipping Calculus (2012-2017) and for the recently funded three-year, $583,525 National Science Foundation grant S^3MT: Supporting and Sustaining Scholarly Mathematical Research (2017-2020).
