Calculus Labs

Created as an extension of the Chapter Opener applications and general calculus concepts, Calculus Labs are a series of 20 technology lab projects that utilize computer algebra systems. Each lab includes an introduction with background information, observations, a statement of the purpose of the lab, and references for further investigation of the topic of the lab. A variety of open-ended questions that require students to analyze, explore, and compare are an integral part of each lab. Software specific data files, graphs and equations are available for each lab series. The labs are referenced in the text where it seems most appropriate to assign them, however, they are flexible enough to be assigned at the instructor's discretion.
