Special Bridge Course: Calculus III - 3 Credit HoursMost of the U.S. collegiate academic system is on a 4-credit hour semester model.
The standard first year of Calculus is usually split into: Calculus I and Calculus II.
But not all U.S. schools are on a 4-credit hour semester model. Some schools are on 3-credit hour semesters, some are on 5-credit hour quarters, etc.
For those students in a different credit hour system, usually the 4 credit hour courses will transfer, usually being "a little more" than their intended transfer course.
One distinctive case has been the student who has completed Calculus I (differentiation) and Calculus II (integration) under a quarter system or a 3-credit hour semester system, and wishes to take Calculus III (Sequences, Series, Introduction to 3D Calculus).
The equivalency of these courses is shown in the following table
|4-credit Semester||3-credit Semester/Quarters|
|Calculus I||Calculus I|
Examples of the CurriculumBelow are some PDF "print outs" of a few of the LiveMath™ notebooks from Calculus&LiveMath™ by Davis/Porta/Uhl. Included as well is an example homework notebook completed by a student in the course, demonstrating how the homework notebooks become the "common blackboards" that the students and instructor both write on in their "conversation" about the notebook.
