The Math Department will offer a hybrid/distance Calculus Class for Calculus 1: Math 1151 and Calculus 2: Math 1152 each Autumn and Spring Semester. (These courses are part of the State of Ohio Transfer Assurance Guides (TAG) Program, which means that these credits are automatically accepted for Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 in all Ohio public colleges and universities and will be highly likely to transfer to any college or university.)
This Flipped and Flexible Calculus class will be modeled after the flipped classroom approach. This means that students will watch videos and do activities online before attending class to prepare for the days class. Then, during class time, students will actively work on math problems, engage in discussions, and work in groups.
The flexible part of the course is that students have a choice how they attend recitation. If they choose, on any given class day, they can participate in the class session online instead of in person through Carmen Connect, an online learning tool and web-conferencing system. The ability to participate in the recitation sections remotely allows distance students, such as post-secondary high school students or regional campus students, to also take part in this class.
Exams (3 midterms, 1 final) will be in-person and proctored. Students may take common evening exams at OSU or proctored exams at their local high school or other local test proctoring site. OSU regional campus students may make arrangements with their regional math learning centers to take the exams there.
