I'm a science major, but I don't see the point of students from fields outside of science, engineering, and finance taking calculus. Most, if not all, colleges require these students to take at least one semester of calculus. A lot of them don't do well and never take another math course in college. Besides, no matter how well they did, most of them will never use calculus again in their lives. What is troubling is that there is no mandatory computer science requirement. We continue to be a digitally illiterate society, nevermind broadband penetration rates. Knowing how to send a tweet or an email attachment does NOT constitute digital literacy. If colleges would only replace calculus with intro programming, at least some students would enjoy it and learn a new skill that can contribute to the economy.
