I posted a note a few days ago about our Internet Calculus Project. I have received several questions about "how an instructor gets a free desk copy." For now, the easiest way is to write directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will register you and email your password to you. For the registration, please include the following.

========================== Original Posting ========================== Bob Hostetler, Bruce Edwards, and I have received lots of questions about our new Internet Calculus project
It was suggested that I post some information here.
The site is huge---it has taken a team of 8 working full time for over a year to bring us to this point. The first third of the on-line text already has more than 10,000 screens. There is a quick "feature tour" available at the site. The publisher will be giving free "desk copies" to instructors to use at home or in the classroom. Student copies require a paid subscription.
I am excited about this "new" type of calculus text. With this site, it's not just a student interacting with a computer, but it is also students interacting with each other.
