Math Department

This report attempts to examine the preparation for calculus on a microscopic level. Researchers tracked the actual enrollment of students in precalculus, calculus, and non-calculus based courses over 20 successive semesters, from fall 1992 to spring 2002. This report is also an examination of the probable success of the calculus preparation curricula. Citation: Dunbar, S. (2006). Enrollment Flow to and from Courses Below Calculus. In N.
