MATH 176: EXPLORATIONS IN CALCULUS
This course is an Inquiry-Based version of Honors Calculus I and II (such as Math 185/186) and provides the necessary preparation for Calculus III (Math 215 or the
honors version, Math 285). A student who has had some exposure to calculus (e.g. AB or BC in high school, or Math 115) will be well-prepared for this course.
This is a calculus course from a theoretical perspective, and we will study concepts
like continuity, derivatives, and integrals, as well as investigate some of the properties of the real numbers that make these things work.
As an IBL course, we will spend the majority of class time
working in groups and presenting ideas and solutions to problems. I will
give occasional short lectures to set the context for the class activities.
