Webinar: Calculus I with a Corequisite, featuring Mt. SAC faculty Lisa Morales and Paula Young

March 2023

This webinar occurred on March 16 from 3-4:30.

Mt. SAC has offered a corequisite for Calculus I for four years as an option for students deemed calculus ready who want extra support. With AB 1705 and the mandate for STEM students to begin in calculus, Mt. SAC is positioned to build on their success with this model. In this webinar, Lisa Morales and Paula Young, math faculty from Mt. SAC, will share their approach to teaching a corequisite for Calculus I, which includes:  

  • Precalculus skill development integrated with calculus topics  
  • A partially flipped classroom   
  • Instructional routines that foster student engagement with homework 

They will review and share resources for two lessons: algebraic techniques for solving limits and the chain rule.  Emphasis will be on active learning and equity-minded practices.
