About ENGR 1990

The development of this course is based on EGR 101 Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications at Wright State University. EGR 101 was developed under a Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). In Phase 3 of this project entitled "A National Model for Engineering Mathematics Education," similar courses are now being developed and taught in engineering programs at various universities.

ENGR 1990 was taught at Western Michigan University for the first time in Fall 2009. It is a new pilot course for incoming first-year students who are concurrently taking MATH 1180 Precalculus, and it is the anchor class for the Learning Community for students placed into Precalculus in the Fall semester.
