Abstract: 

In the fall term of 2010, the Mathematical Association of America undertook a large-scale survey of instruction of mainstream Calculus I in two- and four-year undergraduate programs. The surveys of course coordinators, instructors, and students involved 168 colleges and universities, 660 instructors representing almost 900 Calculus I classes, and 34,000 students, 12,000 of whom answered the initial student survey. This will be a preliminary report of some of the findings.
