STEP Central Webinar: Bridging Calculus in One Week
For continuation courses, such as Calculus I->II->III, many students who struggled in the first are at great risk in the second. However, they have passed with at least a grade of C. Experience and data shows this is exactly the case. The attrition in the next course, particularly of those with a grade of C, is unacceptably large. Specifically, consider the transition from Calculus I to Calculus II. To help them succeed, we offer a one week intensive mini-bridging program that covers the essential content from Calculus I. The content includes derivative rules, partial fractions, calculus of trigonometry, basic integration, and a review of limits. The program is conducted online with enrolled students in voice communication with a live tutor. In our Webinar, we discuss the details of the program, from the logistics, to the content, to the results, and to the costs. Students love it!
