a wide range of lower-division courses to students who have exhibited the
talent and dedication to study university-level material while still in high
At present approximately 51 Connecticut high schools
participating in the ECE Mathematics Program. Starting in AY 2013-2014,
the mathematics courses available are:
Math 1030Q, Discrete
Math 1131Q, Calculus I
correspond roughly to the Calculus BC courses of the Advanced Placement Program
For the Academic Year 2010-2011, there were about 1650 students who took ECE
Mathematics courses during the year in 120 classes across the state. In the vast
majority of these classes, 97 of them, were calculus classes.
