Lucas, Timothy A.; Spivey, Joseph – PRIMUS, 2011

In the Spring of 2007, a group of highly motivated mathematics graduate students conducted a review of Duke's Calculus curriculum. They focused on two main problems. The first problem is the result of a very positive trend: a growing number of students are earning AP credit for Calculus I in high school. However, this results in Calculus II…

Khattri, Sanjay Kumar – PRIMUS, 2010

Based on the Lobatto quadrature, we develop several new closed form approximations to the mathematical constant "e." For validating effectiveness of our approximations, a comparison of our results to the existing approximations is also presented. Another objective of our work is to inspire students to formulate other better approximations by using…

Hamdan, May – PRIMUS, 2008

Through an account of the history of exponential functions as presented in traditional calculus textbooks, I present my observations and remarks on the spiral development of the concept, and my concerns about the general presentations of the subject. In this article I emphasize how the different arrangements and sequencing of the subjects required…
