The Forum's Internet
Mathematics Library provides a page of links to
Calculus
Reform resources. A few selections from these pages are offered below.
Calculus Reform is one of the most active areas of math education reform
at the precollege and college levels. An MAA committee,
Calculus Reform and the
First Two Years (CRAFTY), is at work on this topic.
A useful collection of articles can be found in the January 1995 issue of the MAA's
Undergraduate Mathematics Education Trends.
Discussing the issues: calcreform is an email
discussion group hosted by eMATH of the American
Mathematical Society (AMS) and archived by the Math Forum. The goal of this list is to
assist in communication between friends and active developers of materials and projects
aimed at reform of curriculum and pedagogy for calculus and elementary linear algebra,
including differential equations. For information about the list, consult
