Student learning goals
General method of instruction
The class will be taught with a mixture of group activities, as well as interactive lectures.
BCUSP 124 (Calculus I) or equivalent.
Class assignments and grading
Homework will be assigned regularly. It will be completed using the Wiley Plus online system. You will need to purchase a registration code for this. Since that registration code includes a complete electronic version of the textbook, there is no need to buy hard copy of the text unless you prefer that and do not wish to print pages from the electronic version yourself. I will also distribute additional materials in class.
Grades will be based on student's performance on assigned work, in-class worksheets and exams.
