Self-Paced Calculus: A Case Study.
Johnson, Guy, Jr.; Pascarella, Ernest T.
Increasingly higher education is confronted with the task of educating a population of students whose entry aptitudes and skills have grown more heterogeneous. Perhaps nowhere is this diversity of abilities more apparent, and at the same time more difficult to deal with, than in courses in introductory calculus. This paper outlines an experimental course in self-paced calculus at Syracuse University that was designed to allow for different learning styles and learning speeds, and yet permit students to achieve mastery of the content. The development of the self-paced sections of Calculus and Analytic Geometry was the result of a cooperative effort between the Department of Mathematics and the Center for Instructional Development at Syracuse University. Course development was carried out during the summer of 1973 and the preliminary design was pilot tested during the fall semester 1973. (Author)
