About Flipped and Flexible Calculus

The Ohio State Math Department will offer a Flipped and Flexible Calculus class for Calculus 1: Math 1151 and Calculus 2: Math 1152 each fall and spring semester.  (These courses are part of the State of Ohio Transfer Assurance Guides (TAG) Program, which means that these credits are automatically accepted for Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 in all Ohio public colleges and universities and will be highly likely to transfer to any college or university.)

This Flipped and Flexible Calculus class will be modeled after the flipped classroom approach.  This means that students will watch videos and do activities online before attending class to prepare for the days class.  Then, during class time, students will actively work on math problems, engage in discussions, and work in groups.

Students in the hybrid sections of the course have in person recitation classes. Students who are unable to attend in person (such as working off campus, being on a regional campus, being at a high school, or being a distance student) should enroll in the online recitation sections.  Online students will attend the same recitations at the same times as in-person students, but will join in through an online web-conferencing tool. 

Exams are common across all sections of the course, including the Flipped and Flexible sections.  Flipped and Flexible students will take online assessments in the same manner as students in other sections of the course.  Students in hybrid sections must take any in-person assessments on the OSU main campus.  Online students may take in-person at Ohio State or at their local high school or other local test proctoring site. Ohio State regional campus students may make arrangements with their regional math learning centers to take the exams there. Other distance students may take exams at approved testing centers such as local community colleges; students are responsible for all fees associated with such testing centers.
