Changing the world

one course at a timeâ€¦

Open Course Library Discussion

Design 42 high-enrollment courses for face-to-face, hybrid, or online delivery

Reduce cost of course materials (< $30)

New resources for faculty to use in their courses

Creating ready-to-use course modules

Mandated curriculum

Canned courses

An effort to force classes to go online

------

The courses will be digital and modular so faculty can take the pieces they want to use and ignore the rest

Finding, compiling, or creating* a low-cost book or book alternative for under $30

And thenâ€¦

*writing a book is not what this grant is funding

- A syllabus with clear learning outcomes
- Course curriculum & instructional materials
- Formative and summative assessments
- Surveys
- Grading rubrics
- Cover letter describing tips and tricks of how to teach the course
- Cover letter for licensing

Planned approach:

- Contextual motivation
- Mix of plenty of drill with interesting applications that donâ€™t exactly match examples
- A function exploration approach: With each new function we study: the graph, important features, domain/range, transformations, finding equations from sufficient data, solving equations, modeling, applications.
- Link graphical, verbal, numerical, and algebraic representations

- Functions
- Functions and Function notation
- Basic Tool Kit functions
- Domain and Range and graphing and Piecewise
- Composition of functions
- Transformations
- Inverse functions

- Linear functions
- Linear functions (finding equations, rates of change, domain/range)
- Graphs (intercepts, parallel/perpendicular, relating words & tables to graphs)
- Solving equations and inequalitiesÂ *maybe distribute to 1 & 4
- Linear models (applications, extensions)
- Fitting lines to data
- Absolute value functions (transformations, graphs)
- Solving absolute value equations and inequalities

- Polynomial and Rational functions
- Polynomial functions (power functions, form, domain/range, turning points, long run behavior)
- Quadratic graphs (vertex, intercepts, transformations)
- Solving quadratic equations and inequalities
- Polynomial graphs (intercepts, graph to/from equation)
- Rational functions (asymptotes, intercepts, domain/range)
- Solving polynomial and rational equations and inequalities
- Applications of polynomial and rational functions

- Exponential and Logarithmic functions
- Exponential functions (form, finding equations)
- Graphs (asymptotes, intercepts, transformations, domain/range)
- Exponential models (applications, continuous growth)
- Fitting exponentials to data
- Logarithms (def as inverse, use to solve basic exponentials)
- Log properties (properties, use to solve more difficult exponentials)
- Graphs (asymptotes, intercepts, transformations, domain/range)
- Solving exponential and log modelsÂ (solving applications)

- Trig functions
- Angles (degreesÂ / radians / reference angle)
- Right triangles (define sin/cos/tan as right triangle proportions)
- Unit circle (relate triangles to unit circle, special angles to memorize, pythagorean identity)
- Trig graphs (transforms, domain/ranges)
- Reciprocal functions (graphs of sec/csc/cot, domain range, defs)
- Solving trig equations (basic solving using unit circle values.Â define inverse functions, domain/range, simple solves)
- Applications of trig equations (modeling)
- Changing Amplitude & Midline
- Non-right triangles (law of sines/cosines with applications)
- Simplifying trig expressions (use identities)
- Proving trig identities
- Solving equations using identities

- Applications of trig
- Polar coordinates
- Vectors
- Applications of vectors
- Polar form of complex numbers
- Parametric equations

What would make you want to use one of these OCL courses?

What kind of course supplement materials are important to you?

How important is the book itself? Could videos, Powerpoints / lecture notes, worked out examples, exercise sets suffice?
