MAT* 242: Projects in Calculus I

1 Credits
(Formerly MATH 188)
A supplemental problem-solving session dominated by problems that will direct attention more to ideas than to techniques. There will be some self-contained examples of applications of calculus that are tractable, relevant and interesting to students. Other problems will require imagination, outside reading and consultation, cooperation and coherent writing. Students will be required to defend both their methodology and their conclusion. Lastly, the readings along with the associated problems from the readings will provide some history of the discipline as well as how mathematics in general and calculus in particular has contributed to intellectual history. May be taken up to two times as MAT* 242 and MAT* 243 .
Prerequisites: Concurrent registration in MAT* 254  (formerly MAT* 250) or MAT* 256  and eligibility for ENG* 101  .
Offered: Occasionally
Fulfills General Education - Mode 4
