Math 1200 Teaching Formats Overview for registration

  1. 1. MATH 1200 Teaching Formats Overview University of Denver Winter 2017
  2. 2. Calculus Options for Daniels Students MATH 1200 Calculus for Business and Social Sciences • Covers differential calculus and interpretations in the real world • Typical AI-N calculus course for most Daniels students • No trigonometry used • Take MATH 1010 if needing algebra prep for MATH 1200 MATH 1951 Calculus I • Covers differential Calculus for Math, Science, and Engineering majors and minors • More theoretical, precise, broader scope of functions • Expects fluency in algebra and trigonometry • Take MATH 1750 if needing algebra and trigonometry prep for MATH 1951
  3. 3. What to expect: MATH 1200 • Study functions, limits, derivatives, meanings: – Includes polynomial, rational, algebraic, exponential, logarithmic functions • Connections to interpretation and application in real-world contexts: – Business, Economics, Social sciences • Online Homework and Written Assignments • Midterm Exams and Final Exam
  4. 4. Two MATH 1200 formats Traditional (Lecture) • Meets MTWR • 50-minute meetings with 60 students • Learning is lecture-based • Instructor presents material in class, practice after class • Friday Lab – 30 students with TA – Recitation and quiz Hybrid (“Flipped” Class) • Meets TRF • 50-minute meetings with 30 students • Online prior to class: – Introductory topics & practice • During face-to-face class: – Facilitated deeper learning & practice • Two extra dates for scheduled 60-student midterms
  5. 5. Why are there two formats? • MATH 1200 has large enrollments and diverse student audience seeking a quality experience • MATH 1200 Hybrid aims to deliver the same course content in a way that is: – more interactive in class – more supportive with smaller class size – more efficient: “new” online, then explore in class
  6. 6. Why choose Lecture format? • MATH 1200 in traditional format best meets certain types of learners – Requires active listening and note-taking – Interaction with instructor in larger group – Individualized learning occurs independently or in office hours – Scheduled daily interaction with calculus in a face- to-face class
  7. 7. Why choose Hybrid format? • MATH 1200 Hybrid format includes – Interaction with instructor in smaller group – Clear expectations of what to study before class – Individualized learning “built-in” • Watch/stop videos and review at your pace • Facilitated practice and support during class – Engage with calculus daily, but according to your schedule on the days without face-to-face class – May benefit your learning needs or schedule
  8. 8. Which sections are which? • MATH 1200 Portfolio page has details on sections: https://portfolio.du.edu/math1200 • Traditional “Lecture” sections – 4-credit sections meet MTWR every week – Associated 0-credit “Lab” sections meet F only • “Combined/Hybrid” sections – Sign up for one of the 4-credit sections meeting on TRF throughout the quarter. – Schedule lists two midterm exam meeting dates on Mondays. – There will be a separate final exam (currently not posted). • Online Schedule of Classes lists the days/dates when sections meet and which labs to select: http://www.du.edu/registrar/course
