Teaching Calculus

I got my contract this evening to teach Calculus I at UMUC. I’ve taught almost the entire mathematics sequence over the last 5 years. But calculus is new to me. For a long time, I shied away from it. I think calculus is difficult enough without the problem of trying to teach it online. But when spring scheduling came up, I asked for it because I wanted to try something new and was looking forward to the challenge.
