Models a new approach to learning through non-traditional homework (explanatory rather than computational); an emphasis on connections to lower- and higher-level material; on learning how the symbolic language of math is used; on graphs, their interpretation, and the effective use of graphics calculators; and on mathematical skills not tied to a single generation of calculators. Ordering information available.
