    Dear alt.math.undergrad 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 taught, (1) Calculus I (postsecondary), (2) Pre-Calculus (postsecondary), or (3) Pre-Calculus (high school), 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

    Hi,
    On a Nov 25th post I asked members of this group to consider participating in a survey that I'm using to collect data for my dissertation. Many of you did and I am very grateful for your participation and valuable feedback.

    I am posting a second time, in case some of you intended to participate and haven't yet. If so, please take a few (15 or so) minutes to complete the survey.
    A special plea goes to those of you that teach pre-calculus at the postsecondary level. My response rate is low for this group...

    Please see the links below.

    Best wishes,
    Kostas Stroumbakis.
