Orlando Minicourse #16


Back to Orlando: Calculus Reform


This is an abstract from a Minicourse conducted at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 10-13, 1996, Orlando, Florida.

Minicourse #16: "Contemporary calculus through applications using the TI-82"
Organized by Kevin Bartkovich and Daniel J. Teague, North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics.

This minicourse will highlight the NCSSM calculus course, an applications-oriented, investigative calculus course centered around lab projects using graphing calculators. It will involve participants in activities that investigate graphical and numerical approaches to differential equations, the significance of local linearity in l'Hopital's rule and the product and chain rules for differentiation, curve fitting with unknown parameters, and analysis of income distribution using integral calculus. Additionally, open-ended group projects appropriate for calculus students will be discussed.
