ENGR 190 – Speed’s First Emporium Class

Collaborative Classroom

Dr. Jeff Hieb is shown assisting students in Room 016 of the JB Speed Building, which has been re-purposed as Speed School’s first collaborative classroom.

After months of study and research, the Engineering Fundamentals Department decided to redesign ENGR 190, the Introductory Calculus course taken by some of Speed’s first year students. Dr. Jeff Hieb agreed to lead this effort and is now directing a mathematics emporium for these students. This course provides intensive review of algebra, trigonometry, and introductory calculus concepts necessary for success in ENGR 101, Engineering Analysis I. The emporium design structures students’ learning opportunities, but allows them flexibility to attend the mathematics laboratory at times convenient to their schedule. All assignments and assessments are done on the computer using MyMathLab, courseware specifically designed to facilitate student learning.
