Computer Supplements for Calculus I.
This report discusses how a computer was used to enhance the curriculum of a college calculus course. Problems with a calculus adjunct course in computer science are detailed, along with the nature of changes in the new program. The changes moved from student use of the computer as an automatic typewriter to use as a tool with instructional programs. Examples of ten assignments directed toward computer use are presented. The view expressed is that the results of the course changes exceeded expectations, with assignments so heavily intertwined with calculus topics that the students were gaining insights into mathematics through the activities.
