A Report on Students in Calculus: A Survey of the Background and Success of Students Taking Calculus at Valencia Community College, 1971-1974.
Edwards, Louis M.
The objectives of this study were to collect and summarize data on students enrolled in a three course sequence of calculus at Valencia Community College, and to describe the educational goals of these students. Specifically, the study sought information about the success rate, previous college mathematics, and scores on a standardized test of students enrolled in the calculus sequence. Results include an increase in enrollments in calculus over a three-year period, with smaller enrollment figures in the two higher courses and almost 50% of the students pursuing preprofessional or business fields.
