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
shareware and freeware programs useful for teaching and learning of
calculus. In addition to the "calculus" directories in the
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.
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

Bob Richardson (RICHARDSONRL@APPSTATE.EDU).
The Consortium (funded by NSF in 1989 and
1993) is developing
and disseminating an innovative core calculus curriculum intended to be
practical and attractive to a multitude of institutions. Information
about the project can be found at
the WWW site. Contact
Herman "Suds" Sudholz (email@example.com).
Mathematica notebooks have been developed to enable science students
to actively learn calculus and differential equations with
guided discovery and exploration. The notebooks and more information
about the project can be accessed at the WWW
site. Contact H. Edward Donley
A World Wide Web-based curriculum development project using the Internet, the TI-CBL, computer algebra
systems, and Java to create a very active learning environment emphasizing the connections among
disciplines and between the university, the schools, and the workplace. More information
is available at the project's Web
site (also see Duke University CCP pages.)

The reports contained on the OSU Calculus Reform
Page summarize research performed at OSU comparing calculus courses taught
using various (reformed and traditional) texts. Also, interesting
information, materials and links to other sites can be found on the
Education Center home page.
A collection of computer laboratories and
class activities developed for the freshman calculus
sequence. Uses Mathcad and Maple V for Windows.
Information and materials available at the
WWW site include a preliminary edition of
in Adobe PDF format.
Also available: examples of calculus
animations (with over 60 animations) as well as interactive
tutorials and tests.

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
can be found on its WWW site.

Assessment and Evaluation in Terms of Dissemination Goals was
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.
The Development Site for Complex,
Technology-Based Problems in Calculus project, funded by NSF,
involves development and dissemination of calculus problems based on applications
in science and engineering. The problems can be accessed at the
site. Various formats, including Mathematica
notebooks, are supported.
Contact Brian J. Winkel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This WWW site
contains information about the Calculus&Mathematica project. Lessons
(in Mathematica notebook format) can be downloaded for the Macintosh, Windows, NeXT
or X Windows environments.
Contact Jerry Uhl (email@example.com).
Transmath is a computer-based mathematics tutor designed to strengthen and consolidate the
basic mathematical knowledge of students commencing numerate degree courses.
The software runs under Windows and is hypertext based. While some exercises
rely on the Mathematica kernel, Transmath can also be used
effectively without linking to the Mathematica kernel.
For more information, contact Simon Maunder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
SimCalc: Simulations for Calculus Learning is a project to build
and test a series of software simulations and curriculum materials designed to support
learning of the underlying ideas of calculus by mainstream students in grades 3-12.
The Michigan Calculus Program Web
site contains information about the program, and various related materials
(including the student guide, a summary of evaluation of the program,
and info on the gateway tests).

The ICTCM conference, sponsored
has established Electronic
Proceedings which include the contributed papers as well as abstracts
of the poster presentations. Several papers deal with
calculus topics. All the abstracts are fully searchable, therefore,
calculus-related items can be found by using an appropriate search keyword.
