• Course Design: This course continues the practice of learning math in a variety of ways:

    • Graphically--the students will use a graphing calculator almost every day to explore various components of algebraic, trigonometric, and transcendental functions.
    • Numerically---the student will learn various techniques to evaluate limits, derivatives, and integrals of functions by approximation and by exact value
    • Analytically--the student will understand that a correct answer isn’t sufficient.  A correct analytical procedure that reveals how to produce a correct answer is required to reveal the student’s understanding of proper calculus knowledge.  
    • Verbally--the student will describe orally and through writing the knowledge gained in the course.  Oral and written reports from group projects emphasize the need to communicate mathematically
    • Connectivity--the student will use the previous methods of learning to assimilate a knowledge of calculus that is deeper and broader that the mastery of just one method.  The goal is to learn material from a variety of viewpoints  and then unify those to build a knowledge base of calculus and its applications.
