Calculus 1 (I)

Logo for Calculus 1 (I)
This is a free online course offered by the Saylor Foundation.'Calculus can be thought of as the mathematics of CHANGE.  Because everything in the world is changing, calculus helps us track those changes.  Algebra, by contrast, can be thought of as dealing with a large set of numbers that are inherently CONSTANT.  Solving an Algebra problem, like Y = 2X + 5, merely produces a pairing of two predetermined numbers, although an infinite set of pairs.  Algebra is even useful in rate problems, such...

Quality Matters Review (Administrator)

MERLOT (  and Quality Matters( are collaborating on a project where Quality Matters will apply its expert capabilities in peer reviewing online courses to the open and free online courses in MERLOT.  QM Peer Reviewers benefit from the practice of applying their review skills, and MERLOT users benefit from the reviews that can help them make better choices of materials.    


The QM Peer Review Process: This was an unofficial QM review in which reviewers applied the QM Higher Education Rubric (4th Edition). The project began in July 2014, with the reviews completed by September 2014.  A QM Master Reviewer led each QM Peer Review team.


 Guidance for Faculty Adoption:  The final report contains detailed reviewer feedback, organized by QM Standard, about the strengths of the course and areas for improvement. Faculty are encouraged to consider all of the feedback as they customize this material for use in their own courses and to share with the community their amendments to improve the quality of the course.


The QM Course Review Final Report - Higher Education is provided below.  Please note that the QM Rubric is owned with full copyright by Maryland Online, Inc. (“MOL”).and administered by QM under exclusive license.  


This course received 80 out of 95 possible points in the review, and did not meet the following QM standards.
