Programs

Fall Program (Math 113, Calculus I)

All Calculus I courses consist of a lecture section (MA 113) which meets three days per week, and a recitation section (MA 193). Non-Excel sections consist of two meetings of 75 minutes each with a one teaching assistant in sections of approximately 30 students. Excel sections consist of three meetings of 2 hours each with one workshop leader and two undergraduate assistants. The undergraduate assistants are often students who have participated in Math Excel in a previous year. During the workshops, students work on a list of hard problems in small groups, facilitated by the workshop leader and the undergraduate assistants.

Spring Program (Math 114, Calculus II)

Spring Program (Math 113, Calculus I)

All sections of Calculus I consist of a lecture section (MA 113) which meets three days per week, and a recitation section which meets for 75 minutes twice a week. For students taking Calculus I in the spring term (especially students who have taken Math 110 in the fall), the Math Excel program offers a supplementary problem-solving workshop that meets once per week for 90 minutes, in addition to the two weekly recitation meetings. During the supplementary workshop, students work on a problem list of hard problems in small groups, facilitated by the workshop leader and one or more undergraduate assistants.
