Topics in Calculus

E. Lee Lady, a professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Hawaii, authored these notes to help students learn how to use, not just understand, the concepts of calculus. A total of fifteen topics are covered and include max-min problems, exponential growth, and the derivation of Kepler's second law. The materials are available in DVI, .pdf, or Java versions. Each topic can be... The Calculus Page

The Calculus Page is operated by the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Davis. Although it gives links to many other online calculus resources, the site has excellent material of its own that is useful for both students and instructors. High school and college students taking beginning and intermediate level calculus will find problem sets with solutions and sample exams....
Homepage of e-Calculus

A mathematics professor from the University of Akron has made available this online tutorial covering many of the topics of a typical first semester of calculus. Beginning with a general overview of continuous functions and fundamental operations, the tutorial progresses to limits, differentiation, and integration. Since the material is so extensive, it is divided into several documents that can...
Graphics for the Calculus Classroom

Douglas Arnold, Director of the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications in Minneapolis and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota, has posted this website of "excerpts from a collection of graphical demonstrations" he developed for first year calculus. Visitors will find an overview and animations for topics such as differentials and differences, computing volume, how a...
An Evolutionary Text Book-Evolving by Student Activities

Working on a new calculus textbook can be a daunting project, and it is something that HÃ¥kan Lennerstad knows a bit about. He happens to be a faculty member at the Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden, and he recently created this paper (along with two of his students, Maria Salomonsson and David Erman) that describes how he was able to develop new ways of learning calculus while working...
An Introduction to Teaching Mathematics at the College Level

Teaching college mathematics can be a daunting task, indeed. It's nice for seasoned professionals and others to have a solid primer on the subject and this guide from Professor Suzanne Kelton is quite useful. The 54-page guide is divided into four chapters that cover documenting teaching practices, classroom basics, course policies, and discussion sections. Each of these chapters has additional...
