Schoenfeld, Alan H.; And Others
One module is presented in units 203, 204, and 205, as a guide for students, and presents a general strategy for solving integrals effectively. With this material is a solutions manual to exercises. This document set also includes a unit featuring applications of calculus to geography: 206-Mercator's World Map and the Calculus. Unit 207-Management of A Buffalo Herd, features a Leslie-type model covering applications of linear algebra to harvesting. Two units include applications of linear algebra to economics: 208-Economic Equilibrium-Simple Linear Models, and 209-General Equilibrium-A Leontief Economic Model. Unit 210-Vicous Fluid Flow and the Integral Calculus, contains applications of calculus to engineering. Module 211-The Human Cough, views calculus applications to physics, biological, and medical sciences. Social science applications of calculus are viewed in 215-Zipf's Law and His Efforts to Use Infinite Series in Linguistics. Unit 216-Curves and their Parametrization, and 231-The Alexander Horned Sphere, focus on introductory topology. Finally, 232-Kinetics of Single Reactant Reactions, views calculus applications to chemistry. (MP)
