Learn Calculus in a Week Instead of a Year! If 'a picture is worth a thousand
words.' - an interactive animation is worth a thousand pictures! The new book,
Learning Calculus with Geometry Expressions provides interactive examples for
first year calculus.
What does this mean? Your student does not have to trudge through endless
drills to master limits, derivatives and integrals. Study with our system,
then go outside and play!
The introductory course presents a truly interactive approach to Calculus using
Geometry Expression from Saltire Software. This dynamic, constraint based
symbolic geometry software allows students to build geometry models and express
them algebraically, both numerically and symbolically.
Students love to use technology in the classroom; the slides and examples
contained in this course will motivate students and keep them engaged. And as
an added bonus, each lesson begins with a vignette about an important
mathematician. Van Warren's excellent instructions and beautiful Geometry
Expressions examples present students with open-ended investigations which
reinforce basic concepts and foster mathematical thinking.
