MAT 1575 students’ instructions
MAT 1575 students, the instructions here are not for you! Do not comment on this post! See the post with your instructions over on the MAT 2680 site here.
MAT 2680 students’ instructions
MAT 2680 students, welcome to the MAT 1575 site! Many of you took MAT 1575 at CityTech but for those of you who didn’t: MAT 1575 is CityTech’s Calculus II course. The students in this class have just finished learning about integration techniques and they’re about to start learning about infinite series. So far, the analytic methods you’ve been learning to solve differential equations involve evaluating a lot of integrals. Later in the semester, you’ll learn a method that uses Taylor series to solve differential equations (but shhhhh, the MAT 1575 students haven’t officially seen Taylor series yet!).
So the MAT 1575 students are like past versions of you! They’re just a little bit behind where you are in their math journeys. What advice do you have for them to help them succeed?
- Maybe you’d like to tell them what skills or material you think is most important from MAT 1575?
- Maybe you’d like to tell them what you wish they’d learned better from MAT 1575?
- Maybe you’d just like to tell them how you succeeded in MAT 1575?
- Maybe you’d like to tell them something more personal like what your major is, what you like about differential equations, what you liked about Calculus II, or what other math classes you have to take?
Your instructions for this assignment are simple: in the comments below, give the MAT 1575 students some unsolicited advice.
Since you have not commented in this group before, your comments will not appear right away. They have to be approved by the administrator first, but the administrator is me and I’ll approve any advice as long as itis not too inappropriate. Anyone who offers any advice will earn participation credit.
