    Students will understand thoroughly the relationship between form and content. Hence, calculus in context. However, the calculus they needed was not, by and large, the calculus that was actually being taught. Teachers must consider the balance between breadth and depth, idea sequencing, factual and conceptual knowledge and choice of texts; all this comes beforeplanning lessons and gathering resources.

    What astounded us, though, was the revelation that differential equations could really be at the center--thanks to the use of computers. These groups include a range of experts, from scientists and mathematicians, to novelists and musicians. Learning Objectives Students will develop skills in writing, digital presentation, and oral communication as complementary parts of college-level communication and literacy. The typical student in calculus has not been driven to study calculus in order to come to grips with his or her own scientific questions--as those pioneering students had. Focusing on urgent problems and enduring questions, Gen Ed courses are unusually explicit in connecting the subjects students study to the people they will become and the world beyond the classroom.

    Students will consider how our understanding of significant questions and ideas is informed by the critical, scholarly, and creative approaches through which we approach those questions and ideas. Powerful knowledge therefore allows us to generalise and think beyond particular contexts. Students will develop the ability to articulate thought in a language other than English and reflect on differences between that language and English. Communication: Students will be able to communicate quantitative ideas in the languages of mathematics, computer science, or quantitative social sciences and will be able to utilize quantitative information in support of an argument. What are the implications of the center of contextual conjunction for how we conceive of curricular enactment, learning, teaching, and schooling?
