The calculus workshop is an optional 0.25 credit (pass/fail) class, which meets once a week for 75 minutes on Tuesday in MECC 172. Each week, you will work in small groups with students from across the various sections on worksheets of supplemental problems designed to reinforce and expand your understanding of the material, and to be beneficial for both students who are struggling, as well as students who are excelling in the course.
There is one section for 131 and one for 132. You can enroll as if it were any other class. If you have any questions, please email Prof. Ryan Pellico or Prof. David Mauro at [first name].[last name]@trincoll.edu.
