The computer algebra system Maple, is being used in the calculus sections
at Christopher Newport University to enhance the teaching and learning of
the calculus. In the course, students are expected to know the usual
concepts in the calculus and, in addition, know how to use Maple to solve
problems involving tedious calculations. A 'how to' manual was developed
by the author to aid instructors in incorporating Maple into their classes.
The manual contains a detailed syllabus suggesting where to use the
computer during lectures, sample lectures incorporating Maple into the
class, homework assignments using Maple, and a 'takehome' test using
Maple. A disk containing the sample lectures is in the manual. A
discussion of the MapleCalc course will be given.
