Description

We will be exploring how Mathematica can improve on (and ultimately replace) traditional methods of teaching first-year calculus. Mathematica becomes the tool not only for discovering new ideas, but also for clarifying and bringing to light all the foundational calculus concepts in first-year calculus that get obscured due to the tedious arithmetic and heavy algebraic manipulation required in traditional methods of teaching the course.
