A Student-Oriented Individualized Learning Program for Calculus at the Community College.
Blough,David K.
The individualized community college calculus course described here was developed to accomodate differences in student learning rates. It consists of three units: (I) limits and continuity; (II) the derivative with applications; and (III) the integral with applications. There are three sections in Unit I, four sections in Unit II, and five sections in Unit III. The student must pass an examination on each section before he/she may proceed to the next section. An examination for a given section may be repeated only twice, and the amount of points allotted for the examination decreases with the number of tries necessary to pass it. Although the course carries three units of credit, the student may elect to complete only one or two of the units in one semester and to finish the course during the subsequent semesters. Each student works with video-taped lectures and a textbook; regularly scheduled question-answer sessions and personal assistance are also available. The goals and behavioral objectives for each unit are detailed, and sample assignments and exams for Unit I are included. (DC)
