On Mar 15, Julie Conlon asked about Applied Calculus and college algebra
texts.


Janson Publications has a few books that may be of interest. _Contemporary
Precalculus through Applications_ incorporates graphing calculators into the
instruction, not just "calculator problems" in the exercises. It would be
very difficult, if not impossible, to use this text without graphing
utilities of some kind.

The companion text, _Contemporary Calculus through Applications_ is under
production and should be available over the summer. It also incorporates
technology (graphing calc's, spreadsheets, or other computer packages such as
MathCAD are essential). Lab activities are included throughout; these labs
depend on the availability of the technology mentioned above. I believe all
of them can be done with graphing calculators, although the other tools may
be more efficient for particular tasks.

For more information you can e-mail JansonInfo@aol.com or call
1-800-322-MATH.
