Applications of Calculus I Class Spring 11

Objectives

The goal of the EXCEL program is to enhance understanding of mathematics (primarily calculus) for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) students. Mathematics is considered the cornerstone of the success of any student pursuing a degree in a STEM discipline. One way of achieving this goal at UCF is by introducing students to the Application of Calculus courses. The presentations that the individual EXCEL faculty members will make in the Applications of Calculus class will show you how material that you will be learning in your Calculus I class is actually used in the discipline of the faculty presenter. These presentations are correlated with sections of your calculus book and will be presented just shortly after you cover these sections in your Calculus I class.

Syllabus and Textbook

The powerpoint presentations corresponding to chapters 1-6 are available upon request by e-mailing excel@mail.ucf.edu.
