Calculus Sequence

Recommendation
If a student begins calculus sequence at a community college and has marginal performance, the student must be encouraged to complete the calculus sequence at the community college. Based on RISE data, transferring partial sequences of calculus courses with minimally acceptable grades imposed difficulty in the subsequent calculus courses taken at the receiving institution. Whereas, either transferring a partial sequence with better grades or transferring the entire sequence, even with minimally acceptable grades, did not result in subsequent difficulties.
