|A program for calculus students designed to boost the performance and persistence of freshman in the UW-Madison's 3-course calculus sequence--a "gateway" course required of students planning to major in science, math, or engineering. The WES program places students into special discussion sections where difficult worksheets and student-driven group work allow students to discover the principles and techniques of problem-solving through close collaboration with their peers.
