Summary: In fall 2010, the Mathematical Association of America undertook the first largescale study of postsecondary Calculus I instruction in the United States, employing multiple instruments. This report describes this study, the background of the students who take calculus and changes from the start to the end of the course in student attitudes towards mathematics and intention to continue in mathematics.
