Calculus in High School--At What Cost?
Sorge, D. H.; Wheatley, G. H.
American Mathematical Monthly, 84, 8, 644-7, Oct 77
Evidence on the decline in preparation of entering calculus students and the relationship to high school preparation is presented, focusing on the trend toward the de-emphasis of trigonometry and analytic geometry in favor of calculus. Data on students' perception of the adequacy of their preparation are also presented. (Author/MN)
