Resources for Studying Calculus
Resources at Dartmouth:
Below you will find two kinds of material, each in an experimental state of development:
Out on the World Wide Web:
You may wish to browse the sites below to see some different approaches to topics
discussed in Math 3. If you find a link that you think should be added to the list, send a note to Dwight Lahr with a brief description.
- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Project Links has developed a
collection of interactive web-based applications that link mathematical topics with applications in engineering and science. Along with calculus modules are ones involving
mechanics, probablitity and statistics, and differential equations.
- This page at the MACMATC
(Middle Atlantic Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications Throughout the
Curriculum) includes several relevant worksheets on topics such as velocity and
exponential growth. An action packed video brings home the realities of
exponential cockroach population growth.
page at the University of Nebraska includes downloadable Maple help
sheets and a list of Maple resources.
- Visual Calculus is a collection of modules that can be used in the study of calculus.
- Contained on this
page is a collection of graphical demonstrations for first year calculus.
- Part of the mission statement of this
group is "to enable ALL students to develop full understanding and practical skill with fundamental concepts of the mathematics of change in meaningful contexts."
