https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84712
Although commercials turn me off, too, I thought this short collection of some notable exercises from my text would be worth posting. This is a printable pdf with exercises from precalculus and first year calculus. Most exercises show that the tools available in these classes already give access to a surprising level of sophistication. Some other exercises are specifically designed to make a point about an important skill or a frequently observed mistake.Thu, 15 Sep 2005 07:00:00 GMTBernd Schroeder Louisiana Tech UniversityGallery of Volume Visualizations

<p>Calculus students are presented with a write-pair-share activity that initially involves the construction of a model based on direct variation and later involves the use of calculus as a means by which to analyze the model. Suitable for either Calculus I or Calculus II students.</p><p> Note: This project has a sequel entitled Fundamental Theorem of Calculus: An Investigation (listed under Interactive Lectures) in which the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is investigated via the constructed model.</p>Tue, 29 Sep 2009 17:54:50 GMTJames Rutledge St. Petersburg CollegeConnected Curriculum Project - Materials for Precalculus
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84777
The CCP includes modules that combine the flexibility and connectivity of the Web with the power of computer algebra systems such as Maple, Mathematica, MatLab and MathCad. The single-topic units can be used for a two-hour lab, or for a shorter supervised period with follow-up on the student's own time, or for self-study. Modules are organized into areas of precalculus, differential calculus, integral calculus, multivariable calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and engineering mathematics. Applications include those in biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, economics and environmental science.Sun, 25 Sep 2005 07:00:00 GMTDavid Smith; Lawrence Moore Duke University; Duke UniversityFundamental Theorem of Calculus: An Investigation
