## Operation Mother Hen

Operation Mother Hen is a partnership between the Department of Mathematics and Science and Engineering Node Services (SENS). With support from a Faculty Educational Technology Grant from the University at Buffalo, Operation Mother Hen began as a pilot project in the fall of 1999.

The purpose of Operation Mother Hen is to provide entry-level calculus students with an opportunity to review the material that was presented in class by viewing video clips of their instructor as she demonstrates the basic principles of calculus. Operation Mother Hen is not intended as a substitute for class attendance, but rather as a supplement to class attendance. With Operation Mother Hen, students may review the basics as many times as they need to from any internet-connected computer.

## System Requirements

Operation Mother Hen requires that you have **a computer with an internet connection** (the faster the better, of course!) and **an audio output device** if you wish to have sound for the video lectures.

Mobile devices are supported.
