Synopses & Reviews
Based on the use of graphing calculators by students enrolled in calculus, there is enough material here to cover precalculus review, as well as first-year single variable calculus topics. Intended for use in workshop-centered calculus courses, and developed as part of the well-known NSF-sponsored project, the text is for use with students in a math laboratory, instead of a traditional lecture course. There are student-oriented activities, experiments and graphing calculator exercises throughout the text. The authors themselves are well-known teachers and constantly striving to improve undergraduate mathematics teaching.
