This intensive workshop introduces you to the central concepts of a full-year calculus course. Work in teams to solve engaging, relevant problems designed to reveal the big ideas behind core calculus topics: definition of limits, continuous and discontinuous functions, instantaneous rate of change, definition of the derivative and definite integrals and area under a curve. Leverage your prior work, understanding and success in math. Optional practice problems are provided to students after each class. Students are encouraged to bring their current class work and questions to this cooperative study group setting for guidance. All level of calculus students welcome!
Students will need access to a computer, webcam, and internet. They will meet electronically using an online platform called Moodle. Login instructions will be sent to the email address associated with the account in advance of the class start date. For questions related to supplies or if you need technical assistance including accessing required equipment or the internet please call 503-200-5858 or email email@example.com
Students will be able to submit their calculus questions/concepts/problems to the instructor in the Moodle platform by way of a Forum. The instructor asks that these be posted at least 24 hours prior to class to be addressed in the next class session. Instructions on how to post questions in Moodle will be reviewed during the first class.
