Summary note
Combines serious academic content with a humorous presentation style to help make calculus more accessible. Used as a supplement to lectures, as a pre-exam review, or for independent study, each program skillfully employs elements such as clever mnemonics, high-tech computer graphics, and entertaining vignettes to boost retention and confidence while driving home core concepts through concise explanations and challenging problems.
The accompanying teachers guide on CD-ROM contains printable program outlines, handouts for students, teachers' tips, and quizzes with solutions.
