Orlando Meetings: Presentation Summary


Back to Orlando: Calculus Reform


This is the summary of a presentation given at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 10-13, 1996, Orlando, Florida.

Writing to Learn Calculus:
Why, What, How

The talk will present reasons why a writing component is important in a reformed calculus course, some samples of writing activities that engender learning, and some suggestions for how to pull it off -- that is, implement and sustain a writing component -- in finite time. These ideas are based on six years' experience with Project CALC by many instructors at Duke and other schools.
