MTH 132 Sections 001-016 and 047-054
In addition, to the normal supplies in this section, you will need access to a printer to print out the course notes (that go along with the videos and in class). To verify that you have watched the videos you will do a similar problem or two to what was seen in the video and submit at before the beginning of class for quiz points. It is important to bring previous sections and notes to class as well as we may jump around a bit as time permits.
Explanation of Class Time
In our sections, we will take advantage of our departmental videos to help introduce us to each topic at a basic level. During class, we will go over more confusing concepts and delve deeper into each section’s material. A colleague of ours once said, “Students don’t go to an English class and read Shakespeare. They read Shakespeare at home and go to class to discuss and expand on what they read.” This is exactly what we are doing with the videos in our course. The videos will lay groundwork which we will expand on in class. Because of your extra efforts, we will be able to spend more time practicing how to use the definitions and theorems to solve problems and relating course content. I expect everyone to come to class having watched the videos and ready to participate. For a portion of the class, students will be expected to work on problems and communicate with each other as we circulate to answer questions.
The quiz points for our section will be earned primarily by taking in-class quizzes in recitation. In addition, you will earn quiz points by correctly completing a page of problems and submitting it at the beginning of each lecture. There will be a total of 12 quizzes and each quiz will be 10 points. Our course schedule can be found at http://mth132.com
