fwd: Calculus labs for graphing calculators

If you are interested in materials to use graphing calculators you can get a reference list by calling Texas Instruments at 1800TICARES. Ask for the "graphics calculator reference list" and they will send it to you. It's part of a document called "TICARES: Educational Support Programs." The reference list has a hundred or so books etc. from publishers that support the use of graphics calculators.
If there is enough interest I could post it to this list (but it's long).  Tom Ferrio Internet: tferrio@lobby.ti.com Texas Instruments (Calculator Products) Phone: 2149171563 P.O.

I am currently in the process of creating lab materials for first and semester calculus classes. We are using the TI81 calculator in class. I was wondering if anybody was aware of some good source material for calculus labs. The two best sources I`ve found so far are "Learning by Discovery: A Lab Manual for Calculus" (MAA Notes #27), edited by Anita Solow, and "Graphing Calculator Calculus Workbook", by Al Shenk.
I would also like to share ideas with anybody else who has also written calculus labs for graphing calculators.
