Advanced Algebra and Calculus. High School Mathematics Curricula. Instructor's Guide.
Natour, Denise M.
This manual is an instructor's guide for the utilization of the "CCA High School Mathematics Curricula: Advanced Algebra and Calculus" courseware developed by the Computer-based Education Research Laboratory (CERL). The curriculum comprises 34 algebra lessons within 12 units and 15 calculus lessons that are computer-based and require mastery for completion by the student. Material in each lesson is presented in sections, so that students are not overwhelmed by too much information and students control the rate at which information is displayed. Each lesson in this instructor's guide provides the lesson title, file name, author affiliation, lesson objective, lesson description, necessary student-computer interactions, intended student audience, approximate completion time, special notes pertinent to the lesson, and figures consisting of computer displays associated with the lesson. Topics included in the algebra curriculum are: operations in the real number system, linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, word problems, ratios, trigonometry, graphing straight lines, graphing functions and polynomials, radicals and complex numbers, quadratic equations, systems of equations, and composite numbers. Topics in the calculus curriculum include: intervals, piecewise defined functions, limits, derivatives, velocity, acceleration, related rates, maxima and minima, and antiderivatives. Appendices include alphabetical lists of the algebra and calculus files. (MDH)
