Welcome to the Calculus Resources On-line area of the
Mathematics Archives. This area contains information
and links to numerous Internet resources, which could be used for
teaching and learning of calculus.
If you would like to suggest adding information to this area, or
have comments or questions,
please contact Przemyslaw
Bogacki, the calculus moderator. Here is the contents of the
Calculus Resources On-line area:

including announcements of workshops, conferences, etc.
Mathematics Archives software collection
contains numerous
shareware and freeware programs useful for teaching and learning of
calculus. In addition to the "calculus" directories in the
Mac
and Windows/MS-DOS
areas, interesting programs may be found elsewhere (e.g., in the directories
"Advanced Calculus", "Graphing Programs", etc.).
Various other areas of the Math Archives also include links and materials relevant
to calculus, e.g. Topics
in Mathematics. They can all be reached through the Math Archives main page.
These are
alphabetized by institution's name (pilot sites are listed under the
original developer institution). Additionally, listings by
country and state and by
platform are available.
A new Business Calculus course has been developed
with the focus on business problems which can be efficiently
resolved by the appropriate use of mathematics and
technology working hand-in-hand. Two texts have been developed: one uses
Derive and spreadsheets; the other uses the TI-85 or
TI-82. The
Web site

Purdue University, Calculus, Concepts,
Computers and Cooperative Learning
In this funded by NSF project,
students are learning the geometric aspects of calculus using
computer graphics and are learning the mathematical concepts via
a mathematical programming language. Some information about the project

also funded
by NSF. Contact David.M.Mathews (David.M.Mathews@cmich.edu).
A cooperative effort between mathematicians,
engineers and scientists to develop educational materials
that link mathematical topics with applications in engineering
and science. The primary product of this effort is a set of
interactive, web-based learning modules. See the web pages
maintained on the Department of Mathematical Sciences site.
