Enrollment limited to 25

Corequisite: Must be enrolled in Mathematics 131 concurrently.

The Calculus I Workshop is a challenging, interactive group learning environment for interested students. Each workshop is typically based on a detailed set of worksheets which students work through in an interactive setting. Students are encouraged to “talk mathematics”, thinking aloud and working with other students. Workshop problems are based on the material covered in lecture, but they are designed to stretch each student’s abilities to the fullest extent. The students spend most of the workshop time collaborating in groups, grappling with difficult ideas and problems.
