Description

This is a model course for a two-term Mathematics for Elementary Educators course. Below is a list of topics and sub-topics arranged in an order that is common for many texts on the subject.

To Do

  • Finish writing/finding problems (have approximately 240, need approximately 30 more)
  • Write set header files
  • Create PDF files for homework assignments
  • Tag written problems for NPL
  • Write solutions
  • Shamelessly copy Multi-variable Calculus wiki layout
