Subject: Re: Algebra, calculus activities for block scheduling
Have you used the book by George Best, Using the TI82 to explore precalculus and calculus? What about the CBL stuff? There are several excellent books out on teaching calculus through labs. The MAA has some great books specifically designed for calculus in their Calculus For New Century series. Regarding software, the best I can recommend for algebra is the IBM Mathematics Toolkit (the old version, NOT the new one). It is super and easy and can be used with all classes from prealgebra through calculus.
