Online course in applied calculus
In summer 2016, ACM will again offer Calculus: A Modeling Approach, an online course open to students enrolled at ACM colleges.
The course is designed primarily for students in the natural sciences and social sciences — such as economics, environmental science, psychology, medicine, ecology, and chemistry — who wish to apply quantitative modeling tools in their discipline.
Enrollment in the course will be limited to a maximum of 20 students in order to preserve the best features of a similar on-campus liberal arts college course.
Course activities will include pre-recorded lectures, online student forums, homework assignments, quizzes and exams, and weekly, live videoconference tutorials with the instructors. Students enrolled in the course MUST be available to participate in the weekly live tutorials.
ACM has offered this online course during the summer for the past three years. The course was developed at the request of the ACM Board of Directors and grows out of a consortial effort to explore ways in which online learning might be used to enhance the educational mission of small, residential liberal arts institutions.
