This version of the course outline is for making quick edits and changes. The actual course description is at http://p2pu.org/general/short-calculus -- I will attempt to keep the two versions synced in some reasonable fashion - Joe
The plan for this course is to work together, using various free learning tools, to create a repository of solved problems in Calculus 1.
The plan for the course is based on the outline at http://www.sosmath.com/calculus/calculus.html -- see this link for some more details, but note that we will certainly not be restricting ourselves to this resource!
The high-level outline for the course is:
- Week 1: sequences & series
- Week 2: limits and continuity
- Week 3: differentiation
- Week 4: integration
- Week 5: techniques of integration
- Week 6: taylor polynomials and power series
We will meet for live conversations one or two times per week (frequency and exact schedule to be decided by course participants).
Sign up task:
We will be using LaTeX to write problems and solutions, so the assignment is to write out a couple of interesting problems and solutions from pre-calculus in LaTeX. You can post them directly to the course facilitator at email@example.com. If you want help with LaTeX please post in firstname.lastname@example.org!
