A Method for the Use of Computing in a Conventional Calculus Course.
Berkey, Dennis D.
An experiment at Boston University was designed to demonstrate that the computer can be successfully integrated into the traditional introductory calculus course. Over half of the students in an introductory course in 1976 voluntarily participated in a programming project involving applications of the concepts to be studied during the semester. All work was to be done on the University's IBM 370/158 time sharing system, whose interactive terminals are available at many locations across the campus. Student response to the projects at the end of the semester was very positive. The projects also resulted in very little out-of-class demand on the instructor's time. (Author/CMV)
