Exploring Multivariable Calculus

Exploring Multivariable Calculus

The main goal of this project is to improve student understanding of the geometric nature of multivariable calculus concepts, i.e., to help them develop accurate geometric intuition about multivariable calculus concepts and the various relationships among them. To accomplish this goal, the project includes four parts: · Creating a Multivariable Calculus Visualization applet using Java and publishing it on a website: · Creating a series of focused applets that demonstrate and explore particular 3D calculus concepts in a more dedicated way. · Developing a series of guided exploration/assessments to be used by students to explore calculus concepts visually on their own. · Dissemination of these materials through presentations and poster sessions at math conferences and...
