Dear nyshsmath member,
My name is Kostas Stroumbakis and I am a doctoral student at Teacher's College, Columbia University. For my dissertation, I want to compare views on what makes adequate preparation for calculus. To this end, I have developed three online surveys in which I ask participants to rate various pre-calculus topics on their importance, as prerequisites, for success in calculus.

If you teach, or recently have tough, (1) Pre-Calculus (high school), (2) Calculus I (postsecondary), or (3) Pre-Calculus (postsecondary) I would really appreciate it if you took a few minutes to complete my survey. It will take about 15 minutes. Please follow the corresponding link below.

Also, if you can help to snowball this or suggest other venues for reaching qualified participants, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
Kostas Stroumbakis

1) High School Pre-Calculus Teacher

2) College Calculus Instructor

3) College Pre-Calculus Instructor
