INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE:
students the background for further studies in math and science.
the requirements for an associate degree.
transferable to another higher educational institution.
and apply limits and continuity of functions.
and apply derivatives of algebraic, exponential, and trigonometric functions.
mathematical reasoning skills and apply formal logic.
derivatives and differential equations.

will be presented in algebraic, tabular, and graphical formats both orally and
written.Students will be expected
to translate between these formats as needed and present their answers in
algebraic, graphical and tabular formats both orally and written.
problems will be presented as explicit algebraic, graphical, or tabular
examples of the material and also as word problems requiring the student to
extract both the required result and the necessary information, but also to
determine what method (s) to use to solve the problem.
Review of previous homework.Students will periodically present selected homework
assignments orally to the class using the portable whiteboard connected to the
on new material.Examples of new
material will be given to the students as both oral word problems that the
students will need to translate into written form and as problems written on
the board that students will solve both individually and as a group.Students are encouraged to
discuss the material as it is brought up in class among themselves and also
with the lecturer.
of new material, historical contexts, and applications.
on examples and homework.Students
will work example problems almost every class and give oral explanations to the
class on how to solve the problem.
least once each unit the students will be given a problem in both written and
oral form to solve as a group in class.
