**Brief History of this Video Course**

- In 2005, Richard Delaware spent 8 months recording a Calculus I course on video for the **VSI **(Video-based Supplemental Instruction) program at UMKC. "Supplemental Instruction" in this sense does not indicate a remedial course, and no content or conceptual richness has been sacrificed. College Algebra was the first mathematics VSI course to be recorded, but the VSI concept which has been in place at UMKC since 1992 has attracted national attention because of its success in 3 other video courses taken by students at UMKC and at 30 other institutions in Missouri.

- Although video technology is commonplace, the pedagogy is fresh. Students view the tapes in the presence of a trained **facilitator**, and have control over the flow of information; lectures are stopped, started, and replayed as needed. When the facilitator pushes the stop button, as cued on the video, students have time to work problems, ask questions, make observations, resolve confusions, collect their thoughts, and more.

- This VSI course has been offered since **Fall 2005** off the UMKC campus to advanced students at rural high schools, and on the UMKC campus to students requiring more time and assistance to succeed in Calculus I.

- The course was recorded in a UMKC video studio by the Multimedia Technology Services division of Instructional Technologies.

richy wrote 8 years ago.this guy is a genuis, even if u have no pre knowledge u can

understand everything

Syd Dogonniuck wrote 9 years ago.The last example you did with the absolute value was very

helpful, thank you!

pratik wrote 9 years ago.thanks! really useful and very well explanations

idiado esosa wrote 9 years ago.how do i get your calculus lecture on a cd

ZRROBHERTTS L-OWWUSU-GYAW wrote 9 years ago.Hi I have enjoyed the lectures very much. What a great

lecturer. I was wondering, where can I get calculus 2

lectures - if there is?

Wonder wrote 9 years ago.solve problems

chandan kumar wrote 9 years ago.This is a very good video and one can learn a lot from by

watching and observing this .BUT THIS IS VERY UNFORUTNET

THAT ONE CAN NOT DOWNLOAD THIS VIDEOS BECAUSE THE LINK WHICH

IS PROVIDED BY THIS SITE IS VERY BAD AND DOES NOT PROVIDES

ANY GOOD PLATEFORM ATALL.

menna wrote 9 years ago.what do i do when it says>>the video is not available

right now???

blank frank wrote 9 years ago.This is great! Thank you! The lectures that are unavailable

can be found at the end of the previous lecture. ie, lecture

5 is included with lecture 4. This has been a wonderful

supplement to my Calculus class. However, Professor Delaware

wastes A LOT of paper! Get this guy a smart board, please.
