**Accelerated Mathematics for Engineering and Science Students**LeTourneau University Lois Knouse Mathematics**Introduction and Rationale**• LeTourneau Univ. is a small private university in East Texas**Introduction and Rationale**• LeTourneau Univ. is a small private university in East Texas • Major emphasis is Engineering and Technology**Introduction and Rationale**• LeTourneau Univ. is a small private university in East Texas • Major emphasis is Engineering and Technology • Necessary for Engineering majors to take Calculus I in 1st semester**Introduction and Rationale**• LeTourneau Univ. is a small private university in East Texas • Major emphasis is Engineering and Technology • Necessary for Engineering majors to take Calculus I in 1st semester • Students entering unable to begin in Calculus I**The Program**• Precalculus – 5 days a week, 7 weeks**The Program**• Precalculus – 5 days a week, 7 weeks • Calculus I – 5 days a week, 7 weeks**The Program**• Precalculus – 5 days a week, 7 weeks • Calculus I – 5 days a week, 7 weeks • Receive 6 hours of credit – 3 towards the engineering major – 3 general elective – all transferable**The Program**• Eligibility – Based on SAT/ACT Mathematics scores • SAT – 550 and 630 • ACT - 24 and 27 • Enrolled in English Composition I preferable**The Program**• Student has option to change to a regular Precalculus class within first 2 weeks**The Program**• Student has option to change to a regular Precalculus class within first 2 weeks • Student can complete Precalculus and choose to withdraw from Calculus I**The Program**• Student has option to change to a regular Precalculus class within first 2 weeks • Student can complete Precalculus and choose to withdraw from Calculus I • Students are encouraged to attend evening help sessions**The Results**• Completed 2 years**The Results**• Completed 2 years • Fall, 2004 • 33 students enrolled • 26 successfully completed Precalculus • 23 successfully completed Calculus I • 18 successfully completed Calculus II**The Results**• Fall, 2005 • 37 enrolled • 26 successfully completed Precalculus • 27 successfully completed Calculus I • 1 student with a D in Precalc. successfully completed Calc I • 18 successfully completed Calculus II • Several students changed major so only 22 attempted Calc. II**Conclusion**• A total of 35 students were ready for Calculus III or Differential Equations in their 3rd semester**Conclusion**• A total of 35 students were ready for Calculus III or Differential Equations in their 3rd semester • They were on track to take other courses required in the engineering curriculum**Conclusion**• If you have questions, feel free to email me at LoisKnouse@letu.edu • I’m looking forward to trying this program for a third year
