An Active Approach to Calculus.
Seltzer, Stan; And Others
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n68 p83-90 Win 1996
Calculus can be taught using meaningful problems and active participation, with provocative problem situations and large-scale projects. An Ithaca College (New York) introductory calculus course uses this problem-based learning approach to develop understanding of central concepts (differentiation, integration, approximation) with less of the traditional emphasis on computation skills.
