To that end, I just wrote my syllabus and set up my Edmodo page for this course and sent a mass email to all my students with the Edmodo class code.
What about Elementary Calculus? Well, I find that students taking this course tend to be a little rusty on concepts from Calculus I & Calculus II especially if they took those courses a while ago. Since Calculus III extends many concepts from Elementary Calculus (MAT122+MAT123 or AP Calclus AB+BC) to higher dimensions, I suppose that a little review is in order. So, at least for the first week or two, we will start each class with a short review of an important topic from Elementary Calculus (Limits & The Difference Quotient, Product Rule and Quotient Rule, Chain Rule, etc).
We will meet for 3 hours per night, 4 nights per week for 5 weeks straight from Monday 7/2/2018 to Thursday 8/2/2018. The first week is different in that we are off Wednesday for The 4th Of July. So, that week will have a Friday class meeting instead. The first 3 days of each week will be devoted to new material. The fourth day will be reserved for review and testing.
What follows is a summary of the first few posts I sent to my students on Edmodo:
FYI #8) B218 also has a PC Media Center/Podium with multiple PC Projectors and HDTVs so you can see everything I do on my PC. I will be doing everything on my PC so you won't miss a thing if you sit in the upper level or if you miss class (aka on the ScreenCast).
