Description

The purpose of this paper is to describe and evaluate the instructional techniques that were used in a two-course sequence of engineering calculus. These techniques included a course Web site that contained solutions to exams from prior years, course notes and solutions to quizzes. Manipulatives, Mathematica and group work were also incorporated into the original design.
