MARK DANIELS: Discovery Precalculus is
not like any other mathematics course you’ve ever taken. Our classroom for this course will
be the University of Texas at Austin, inside the Blanton Museum of Art. I can’t think of a better classroom
to learn mathematics in a creative way than to be surrounded by
a creative environment. It is your creative energy
that makes the course work, and your creativity
can we put into that. Most people don’t think mathematics
is a creative endeavour, when that’s exactly what it is. Discovery Precalculus is
presented in an inquiry-based way. You will engage deeply in the
mathematics being learned. You will be an active learner. You will construct your own knowledge. In order to do this,
Discovery Precalculus will immerse you in discovering
the hows and the whys of what it’s like to learn
mathematics at a deeper level. It will teach you what
makes mathematics tick. You will learn not only
the precalculus content. You’re going to learn how to think
better, think logically, and ask the right questions. That’s the difference
between Discovery Precalculus and the traditional precalculus course.
