Calculus & Mathematica anyone?
I've been thinking about the Calculus & Mathematica project by Jerry Uhl et. al. I used some of his work years and years ago in the early days of Mathematica when we had a copy at my HS. This project was very useful for students to learn Calculus at their own pace in a lab setting.
I wonder if anyone is doing something like this in addition to the traditional Calculus AB or Calculus BC class. Alternatively, is someone using something other than Calculus & Mathematica, maybe some other courseware? Any pointers or success stories out there? Inquiring minds want to know!
