This is the syllabus used for the 1995-96 freshman calculus courses in the Foundation Coalition integrated curriculum. For a more detailed description of the syllabus, click here for the fall 1995 semester and here for the spring 1996 semester.

The syllabus above refers to the lecture classes, which typically meet for 50 minutes on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. In addition, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, there are Calculus Workshops and Maple (Computer) Laboratory classes, in which students work in teams on an assignment which typically involves using the computer algebra system Maple. These activities are intended primarily to teach Maple and to reinforce the calculus concepts covered in lecture and in the homework. In addition, we have found that the Tuesday/Thursday classes provide excellent opportunities for relating mathematics to the other courses in the integrated curriculum. Below we list several of these assignments which were in some way connected to material being covered in the other courses.
