Pathways to Calculus

Designed to foster student learning and success, the Precalculus: Pathways to Calculus course has been proven to build student understanding of foundational ideas for success in future courses in mathematics, the sciences, business, and medicine. The accompanying workbook is published by Hayden-McNeil and available for purchase as part of the Pathways to Calculus online curriculum available through Rational Reasoning at

Marilyn Carlson and her co-authors have divided the course into eleven modules that build student understanding of central concepts and fluency in solving problems. Precalculus: Pathways to Calculus is based on over 20 years of research on student learning in calculus and precalculus and has been refined through repeated research iterations to assure that students emerge from the course with the knowledge and confidence to persist in STEM fields.
