Designed by Gerardo Mendoza and Dan Reich of Temple University, Calculus on the Web, better known as COW, is an "Internet utility for learning and practicing calculus." COW provides practice problems in an interactive format whereby users submit answers to find out if they are correct. "Hands on modules" allow students to "change values or parameters in a function or graph and then see the...

This Website from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville's Mathematics Department provides tutorials, drills, and computer programs that aid in understanding pre-calculus and calculus. The well-organized materials contain nifty animations, interactive pages, step-by-step solution applets, and illustrations. Getting the full benefits of Visual Calculus requires downloading certain free plug-ins...

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....

QuickMath is one of the most useful sites for common but tedious mathematical calculations. It is a free "online calculator that solves equations and does all sorts of algebra and calculus problems." Separated into many different functional sections, this handy tool can simplify expressions, evaluate symbolic integrals, plot equations, and much more. When inputting a problem into QuickMath for it...

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...

The thought of learning calculus has struck fear into the heart of many students for several centuries, but this most intriguing subject need do so no longer. Developed with assistance from the National Science Foundation, the Calculus on the Web (COW) project was created by Gerardo Mendoza and Dan Reich of Temple University. As their mission statement notes, "The principal purpose of COW is to...

Discussing functions can be a tricky endeavor, but having a handy interactive way to talk about functions can relieve a great deal of stress. As part of the Mathematical Sciences Digital Library, this Functions Grapher application is designed to let users enter one or two functions. After doing so, users can trace along either one with coordinates shown dynamically changing at all times. The...

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...

Located in lovely Bellingham, Washington, Whatcom Community College serves a diverse population from all across the state and beyond. Their math center has developed this rather nice collection of math links that include helpful test-taking hints, online exercises, and resources for teachers looking to find new ways of exploring everything from geometry to measurement. While the site doesn't have...
