Calculus is one of important course in Engineering Faculty, because it is a foundation of other courses. Moreover, at our University, Calculus is one of drop out requirements for fresh student. Based on this condition, we think that an innovation of learning method should be design to give special treatment for students that do not pass calculus class in the first semester. This second semester, we do an innovation of learning method in Calculus class. The innovation contains Initial Student Worksheet (ISW) before class. In the beginning of the class session, material related with the ISW is explained shortly by the lecturer and continuing with do exercise in small group discussions. The result of the discussion will be presented in classroom as panel discussion. The last, in the end of the class students get individual test. As evaluation of this innovation, we found that 64%of the students has score more than 65 and 95% of the students give positive respond to this innovation. For advanced research, we would like give some improvement in this method to increase the passing percentage of the course.
