Assigned readings, homework, and in-class group work

This is an Active Learning section under the auspices of the University First-Year Discovery Program. Class will meet for five hours each week: three hours of short lecture/in-class group work, and a two-hour group lab. Lectures will be brief (15 minutes maximum) and designed merely to introduce key ideas and clear up misconceptions. The majority of class time will be spent in small groups working on problems.

It is essential that you read the textbook before coming to class! The text by Ostebee and Zorn is designed to be read. For each class period there will be a reading assignment of 5-10 pages. You will be expected to contribute to the discussion at the beginning of class based on what you have read. I may have occasional short (unannounced) reading quizzes.

The graphing calculator will be a significant learning aid, and you will use it frequently in class, on the homework, and while studying. Use of the calculator on exams will be decided on a case-by-case basis, and will be announced in advance of the exam.
