Now I'm really feeling like a lurker, so I suppose I'd better post something... I *wish* I were going to Clemson; I've been teaching AP Calc for about 10 years, with much success, here in my Vermont corner. I'd like to take my involvement with AP a step further; I'm on the "Approved New Reader List" so I'm hoping to be bound to Clemson someyear soon...
In the meantime, I hope you all will keep talking in this space; it looks like a promising forum for me to gain insight.
I'm quite interested in hearing how people incorporate graphing calculators and juggle, or interweave, technology lessons with mathematics lessons...I use the TI-85 because it's so powerful and easy to use compared to the the TI-82.
And, in response to Jennifer Nicholl's query about texts, I've been using the same version of Thomas, (you know, with the "whales"), forever. I supplement like crazy, and teach topics and concepts in my own order. I might consider using a reform text (I'm a tad conservative, so those are radical words) so I'm quite interested in what others have to say about them.
