It is currently offered on campus at a number of universities, and by distance education at many high schools.  This module introduces teachers to the content and pedagogy of the Calculus&Mathematica course. This module is suitable for any mathematics teacher interested in teaching, or simply learning more about, the Calculus&Mathematica course. Credit: 1 grad. sem. hr.

Common Core Standards for Mathemtical Practice that are emphasized include:

  • 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  • 4. Model with mathematics.
  • 5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

Calculus & Mathematica for Mathematics Teachers was written by Tony Peressini and Debra Woods from the University of Illinois during January 1996. It was updated by Tom Anderson for Mathematica Version 10.0 in April 2016.
