Educating about Sustainability while Enhancing Calculus
Pfaff, Thomas J.
PRIMUS, v21 n4 p338-350 2011
We give an overview of why it is important to include sustainability in mathematics classes and provide specific examples of how to do this for a calculus class. We illustrate that when students use "Excel" to fit curves to real data, fundamentally important questions about sustainability become calculus questions about those curves. (Contains 5 figures.)
