For Fall 2012, the ESP classes (each for about 25 students) are:
· Math 1323 (Pre-Calculus II) section 110 meets T Th 9:30 – 10:50 (lecture) and Th 2:00 – 3:50 (seminar).
· Math 1426 (Calculus I) sections 710 or 720 meet T Th 12:30 – 1:50 (lecture) plus W 1:00 – 2:50 or 3:00 – 4:50 (seminar). Lab section 107 meets T Th 11:00 – 11:50.
· Chem 1441 (Gen Chem I) combined lecture/seminar sections 401 - 404, and a regular lab section (sections 101 - 126). The lecture times for sections 401-404 vary, but all have the seminar Th 1:00 - 4:50
· Chem 1465 (Gen Chem for Engineers) combined lecture/seminar sections 301 or 302, and a regular lab section (sections 101 - 108). Both of the lecture/seminar sections (301 and 302) meet T Th 9:30 - 10:50 with the seminar Th 1:00 – 2:50 or 3:00 - 4:50
In mathematics, most of the weight of the lab grade comes from the regular lab but some comes from the extended ESP, e.g.,
attendance, participation, presentation. For Chemistry, we offer an ESP Chemistry for Engineers both semesters and a General Chemistry I
both semesters. The Chemistry plan is to have a one semester ESP program followed by assigning students
to a mentor for one semester as part of the program. We use the ESP courses in math and chemistry as gateways to the authentic experiences
including undergraduates in research opportunities. It is intended that only students who go through an ESP for at least one semester would be
eligible for the AURAS authentic experiences opportunities.
