Development of Course Materials To Integrate Precalculus Review with the First Course in Calculus.
This document describes a two-year project designed to prepare, desk-top publish, and class-test supplemental materials geared specifically toward a slower-paced, one-year Calculus I course that integrates the review of precalculus topics as they are needed. This course replaces the traditional two-semester Precalculus-Calculus I sequence for underprepared students. This report includes an executive summary involving project overview, statement of purpose, background and origins, project description, evaluation/project results and conclusions. A 1992 draft of the text: "A Companion To Calculus"; an evaluation report of the two-year project; announcements and program materials from the dissemination conference, and two papers related to this project are contained in appendices.
