IntroCalculus.2020: Introduction to Calculus

July 6, 2020 @ 2:00 pm

This course is designed for students starting calculus for the first time this fall. We will refresh some topics from precalculus, such as graphing, inequalities, and logarithms, with a particular focus on interpreting word problems. One thing that will be important as students move onto calculus will be understanding how we can make a graph to help us solve a question, especially word problems. The goal of this class is for students to have a fun experience where they are discussing problems with their peers, using mathematical language and notation, and applying what they have learned in precalculus to challenging new problems to help them feel confident going into calculus. Even though it is virtual, this class will be student-discussion centered. Students will explain their solution approach to their peers and hopefully will help them feel connected while deepening their understanding of algebraic, graphical, and verbal reasoning.
