This workshop is designed to acquaint participants with the online interactive calculus book developed by the organizers as part of the NSF-funded MAA project, MathDL Books Online, NSF Grant DUE-231083. This book is the second edition of materials originally published in print as Calculus: Modeling and Application. You can view the book at http://www.math.duke.edu/education/calculustext.
A one-variable calculus course using this textbook is in its second year 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 book 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, if desired, a web camera. A headset (earphones and microphone) works well, but microphones built into either computer or a web camera do not work well. No special software is required.
