-----YOUR MESSAGE-----------------------------------------------
Have any of you involved in calculus reform adapted reform material
specifically for a course in Business Calculus. I am aware that at many
schools, business majors take at least one semester of the regular calculus
sequence. However, a number of school have a separate course for business
majors. Such a course usually drops trigonometric functions and focuses on
business applications (though in the minds of many of you these are not
realistic applications.) I am interested in any reform work that is being
done specifically for this latter type course. I would be grateful to learn
about the type of program and on what materials it is based.
