On the Presentation of Pre-Calculus and Calculus Topics: An Alternate View
Davydov, Aleksandr; Sturm-Beiss, Rachel
AMATYC Review, v30 n1 p22-28 Fall 2008
The orders of presentation of pre-calculus and calculus topics, and the notation used, deserve careful study as they affect clarity and ultimately students' level of understanding. We introduce an alternate approach to some of the topics included in this sequence. The suggested alternative is based on years of teaching in colleges within and outside the US, and on our careful review of textbooks currently used in two-year and four-year colleges.
