Comment here if you would like to participate in another course this fall, such as math

How soon do we get our questions answered and where do we find your answers? Sept 3, 2010- LouAnnp Will you be starting an American History Class? If not, how do we check the answers to the exams? Thank you, LouAnnp

What are some other courses? And what level of Mathmatics? --Davidkon 15:06, 6 June 2010 (EDT)
I've been neglecting my multivariable calculus (aka Calc 2-3/3) for too long, but I see no reason for it not to be ready for students by the fall. JacobBShout out! 15:10, 6 June 2010 (EDT)
I'd love to help with a course on multivariable calculus! I'll promote it on the Main Page. :: By the way, when I heard the scripture reading today about the multiplication of the loaves, I thought of the "paradox" resulting from the Axiom of Choice. Perhaps there is an undeveloped logical basis for duplication!--Andy Schlafly 15:39, 6 June 2010 (EDT)
My work so far can be found through the various lectures linked to through my course template. As you can see, an enormous amount of material is good to go, it just needs to be re-organized, and maybe get some problems developed. JacobBShout out! 19:04, 6 June 2010 (EDT)
I know something about multivariable calculus, if you need an extra man. PhillipA 23:55, 6 June 2010 (EDT)
We have a lot of the material up right now, Phillip. If you'd like to look at the lectures (see my user page), feel free to, but at this point I feel it would be best to email all your suggestions to me or post them on the talk pages, so as to avoid repetition and clutter.JacobBShout out! 00:14, 7 June 2010 (EDT)

Is social sciences a possibility? --Martin Amrowski 19:23, 6 June 2010 (EDT)  : Which one, specifically? I do teach a course on Economics.--Andy Schlafly 09:17, 7 June 2010 (EDT)

I'm interested in reading the lectures, and other materials, for the multivariable calculus course, though I might not actually "take" the course in the sense of doing the homework and taking the tests. It depends on how much time I have. Thank you. HarryJP 23:11, 12 June 2010 (EDT)
I am kind of a programming geek, and I am wondering if I could take a class that has something to do with programming languages that don't require a compiler, just an interpreter (like JavaScript and the DOS command prompt for Windows) and other interpreted languages heavily supported, mostly through Windows, especially XP, Vista and Windows 7. Are there any such technology classes? Star651 15:52, 14 June 2010 (EDT)
I'm interested in the multivariable calculus class. Will this be applicable or helpful for any AP or CLEP exams? Will there be any kind of official certification I can get from taking this course? I'm planning to take the AP calc BC test next year. Will this be helpful for that? By the way, the formatting of this page looks screwed up compared to most other pages. BethB 23:33, 19 June 2010 (EDT)
Yes, Beth, sorry about the formatting - I'm so glad to hear you're interested in our multivariable calc course! The course is not accredited - however, if you're planning on taking the BC calc test next year, it will help. We will cover material which you will need to know for that test, and you will have access to a certified tutor and college instructor (me) for private consults via email and IM.

I'm interested in all 3 courses. The Calc 1 and Calc 2 courses cover material I supposedly covered this past year, though it would certainly do me some good to see them again. The mutivariable calc class is over my head at present, based on the partial lectures I've seen. But I would would probably find this material to be very interesting once it is finished. I never understood the parametric surface stuff. PaulH1 23:39, 23 June 2010 (EDT)

Welcome!--Andy Schlafly 23:43, 23 June 2010 (EDT)

The Unborn Child

The possibility of teaching a course on the unborn child is being considered. Please add comments here if interested.--Andy Schlafly 12:34, 17 July 2010 (EDT)

Would the course focus on the theological issues surrounding him, or what exactly? I mean, I learned a fair amount about it in my religious studies, but are you thinking about also discussing the biological, legal, etc, stuff too? Either way, but especially the latter, I would certainly like to at least read over the lessons; I don't know if I could enroll in the course itself, especially since I'm still in college and one course load is all I can handle so far! :) I'd be happy to contribute in any way you think I could though, if only just with my obsessive copy editing. Tyler Zoran Talk 23:02, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
I think we'd spend one class on the biblical references, but probably not delve into the theology much more than that. With 12 classes overall, there is much ground to cover in addition to theology, although theological insights are always welcome!--Andy Schlafly 23:09, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
Perhaps there can be cross-collaboration with Wikiversity on this, given that community's generally more impressively scholarly approach (relative to Wikipedia) in reference to subject matters such as those at hand. Tisane 23:28, 17 July 2010 (EDT)

Other Courses

You know, as long as I'm on this page, is there any interest in maybe an economics course or two? If I can find the time before I start class again I could work out some good information based on my course notes for micro and macro. Maybe even some of my finance courses in later semesters after we build up a foundation (since finance can be off putting for some people, I think, so maybe econ first?) I'm no teacher, but I certainly have plenty of information that's accompanied me through earning my MBA. Tyler Zoran Talk 23:07, 17 July 2010 (EDT)

We do have an economics course. I taught it last year, I think, and all the materials are posted.--Andy Schlafly 23:09, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
Oh, ok; I'll look for that then. What about accounting? Even though I don't find it too personally exciting, to be honest... it's like the #1 college major and the accountants are really in demand. Tyler Zoran Talk 08:19, 18 July 2010 (EDT)
Accounting can be a useful course, but we try to focus on topics that are more substantive and more susceptible to liberal bias.--Andy Schlafly 09:25, 18 July 2010 (EDT)
