Many students enrolled as a STEM major do not complete their introductory courses. As the years go by, many things around us change except for the way students receive their lecture. The purpose of this study was to look to see if student' s mindsets differ in a flipped calculus classroom compared to a CLEAR calculus classroom. The research hypothesis was that there is an improved mindset in a flipped classroom compared to the CLEAR calculus classroom while the null hypothesis was that there is no difference. Participants are calculus II students in a flipped calculus classroom as well as a CLEAR calculus classroom setting who volunteered to take a survey at the start and the end of the semester.
