https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16229
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=16229This course, presented by MIT and taught by Professor Denis Auroux, presents multivariable calculus. It is intended for use in a freshman calculus course. It includes material relating to vectors and matrices, partial derivatives, double and triple integrals and vector calculus in 2 and 3-space. The material includes video lectures, lecture notes, exams (with solutions) and student assignments (without solutions). MIT presents OpenCourseWare as free educational material online. No registration or enrollment is required to use the materials.Fri, 10 Dec 2010 03:00:02 -0600Hiking and Climbing in Yosemite

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13730Created by Lang Moore and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this module is to establish the meanings of gradient and directional derivative in the context of a contour map of real terrain. This is one within a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Wed, 12 May 2010 03:00:02 -0500Introductory Calculus I
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7426
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7426Presented by HippoCampus, a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education, this free online course is designed to acquaint visitors with "calculus principles such as derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, and applications and modeling." This section is the first of a two-semester Introductory Calculus course and contains four units: Functions and Graphs, Limits and Continuity, Derivatives, and Applications of the Derivative. Each unit has seven to nine lessons, each with readings, a multimedia lecture, and an assessment with answers. The site also lists all the topics covered, indexed in both alphabetical and sequential order. It's a great place for students to get extra help in calculus and for instructors to find lecture and test materials for the classroom.Wed, 16 Jul 2008 03:00:03 -0500AP Calculus AB I
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7560
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7560HippoCampus, a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE), seeks to provide “high-quality, multimedia content on general education subjects to high school and college students.” This course, Advanced Placement Calculus AB I, is part one of a two semester course and contains study materials, lessons, and textbooks to help students prepare for the College Board AP Calculus AB exam. Two course units, containing 14 lessons, cover a multitude of topics such as: differential equations, derivatives, antiderivatives, trigonometric functions, and definite integrals among others. This is an excellent self-paced tool for students to use while preparing for the AP Calculus exam, or as supplementary material for a calculus course.Thu, 10 Jul 2008 03:00:13 -0500AP Calculus BC I
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7433
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7433Presented by HippoCampus, a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education, this free online course covers all of the material outlined by the College Board as necessary to prepare students to pass the AP Calculus BC exam. This course is divided into two semesters and this unit is the first of those two semesters, it is designed to "acquaint you with calculus principles such as derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, applications and modeling, and sequences and series." The course is separated into four units, including functions and graphs, limits and continuity, derivatives, and application of the derivative. Each lesson has objectives, readings, multimedia lectures, and assessments with answers. The site is also indexed by subject, which can be browsed alphabetically or sequentially. It is a great place for students to enhance their calculus skills or for educators to find supplementary materials for the classroom.Wed, 9 Jul 2008 03:00:17 -0500General Calculus I
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7578
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7578Presented by HippoCampus, a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education, this site is the first semester of a two-semester course designed to acquaint visitors with "calculus principles such as derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, applications and modeling, and sequences and series." By clicking on "Course View" visitors can view a syllabus for the course and the four course units: Functions and Graphs; Limits and Continuity; Derivatives; and Application of the Derivative. Each unit contains multiple lessons, and each lesson contains readings, multimedia lessons, assignments, and assessments with answers. By clicking on the "Topic View" visitors can browse, in a single list, all the course topics covered, indexed in both alphabetical and sequential order. This course would be a great place for students to get extra help in General Calculus and for instructors to find lecture and test materials for the classroom.Tue, 8 Jul 2008 03:00:07 -0500The Elementary Calculus Line
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6549
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6549George Mason University’s Department of Computer Science is responsible for this great elementary calculus site. Each topic presented on this site contains learning objectives, definitions, examples, diagrams, and exercise problems. The topics available here include: functions, domains and ranges, intercepts, limits, graphing functions, derivatives, and integrals. This site is a perfect resource for anyone in an introductory calculus course, or those who need a refresher on some of the basic calculus concepts.Tue, 22 Apr 2008 03:00:03 -0500Derivatives
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6552
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6552Murray Bourne developed the Interactive Mathematics site while working as a mathematics lecturer at Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore. The site contains numerous mathematics tutorials and resources for students and teachers alike. This specific page is focused on differentiation, or finding derivatives. Bourne walks users through an introduction to differentiation and limits, and then moves on to more specific applications like rate of change, derivatives of polynomials, and differentiating powers of a function. Each topic includes graphs and interactive materials designed to aid users in understanding the presented concepts. The information here is presented in a clear, straightforward manner that is appropriate for introductory and advanced calculus students alike.Tue, 22 Apr 2008 03:00:03 -0500Calculus Course Materials

Logarithms and Exponential; Sequences; Series; Techniques of Integration; Local Behavior of Functions; Power Series; Fourier Series; and an Appendix of Mathematical Tables.Wed, 12 Dec 2007 03:00:01 -0600ZweigMedia Finite Mathematics & Applied Calculus
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=623
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=623Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble of Hofstra University's Department of Mathematics (mentioned in the February 14, 1997 Scout Report) provide the Finite Mathematics & Applied Calculus Resource Website as a parallel resource for their textbook on these subjects. This excellent resource offers a plethora of opportunities for the user to enhance his or her mathematical skills. Sections included at the site are Simplex Method Tool, Matrix Algebra Tool, Markov System in Action, and On-Line Numerical Integration, among others. Each section discusses the subject as it relates to Finite Mathematics Applied to the Real World, Calculus Applied to the Real World, and Finite Mathematics & Calculus Applied to the Real World. A highlight of the site is the On-line Interactive Tutorials section. Each tutorial (Algebra, Finite Mathematics, and Calculus) section provides a brief summary of the discussed topic along with a review exercise and true/false quizzes. This site is well worth a visit.Tue, 1 Nov 2005 08:14:16 -0600
