The UTOP Begins

David successfully applied for a University Teaching Opportunities Program grant for spring 2010. We decided it might be useful to blog our thoughts as a means to document the process.

There are two courses we will focus on, Survey of Math and Calculus I. Calculus I is the standard calculus class taken by a variety of majors, and typically has students enrolled with a wide variety of mathematical background and ability (from PSEO high school students to seniors meeting a major requirement). Survey of Math is a general education M/SR course that was created to meet standards for teaching licensure in the state of Minnesota. While Survey of Math is open to all students enrollment is predominantly elementary education majors.

For the first ten weeks or so of the semester, we will be working on Calculus I. For the last few weeks, we will turn our attention to Survey of Math.
