This online workshop is designed to acquaint participants with online interactive calculus materials being developed by the organizers as part of the NSF-funded MAA project, MathDL Books Online, NSF Grant DUE-231083.
The workshop include:
There will be opportunities for structured investigations of the materials, general discussions, and individual online consultations.
The online materials represent a second edition of materials published as Calculus: Modeling and Application. You can view the materials at www.math.duke.edu/education/calculustext/.
A one-variable calculus course based on these materials is currently being tested at Hood College. The workshop will be valuable for anyone interested in using online interactive materials for a calculus course, but we also hope to recruit some workshop participants to site-test the materials at their home institutions. Thus we encourage teams from one school or neighboring schools to apply. All members of a team should be in the same physical location during the workshop.
In addition to a reasonably up-to-date computer with a fast internet connection, each participant will need to have access to headphones, a microphone, and an inexpensive web camera.
