Meier, John; Thorme, Trisha – Primus, 1997

Outlines a pair of projects used in introductory calculus that are inspired by techniques archaeologists use in the analysis of pottery. These real-world application problems appeal to students who are not necessarily interested in the standard application of calculus. (Author/DDR)

Technology, Cooperative Learning, and Assessment in the Teaching of Ordinary Differential Equations.

Peer reviewed

Barber, Fredrick; Narayan, Jack – Primus, 1994

Reports on the use of technology to enhance the teaching of ordinary differential equations, gives examples of laboratory activities using cooperative learning, and discusses assessment of student learning. MacMath, TI-81 graphing calculators, and Maple were used in the course. (Author/MKR)

Avioli, John J. – Primus, 1993

Computer labs using Calculus T/L were introduced into Calculus I classes at Christopher Newport University. A description of the labs, the instructor's experiences in using the labs, and student reactions are detailed. Contains instructions for Lab I involving inputting functions, finding difference quotients, and sketching a graph. (Author/MDH)

Kelly, Susan E.; LeDocq, Rebecca Lewin – Primus, 2001

Describes the specific courses in a sequence along with how the writing has been implemented in each course. Provides ideas for how to efficiently handle the additional paper load so students receive the necessary feedback while keeping the grading time reasonable. (Author/ASK)

Alexopoulos, John; Barb, Cynthia – Primus, 2001

Presents problems to find the integrals of logarithmic and inverse trigonometric functions early in the calculus sequence by using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and the concept of area, and without the use of integration by parts. (Author/ASK)
