The first generation of calculus reformers exploited emerging technologies and the theme of multiple representations of functions. These pioneers also demonstrated effective, innovative teaching techniques, including collaborative learning, writing, discovery, and extended problem solving. Calculus: Mathematics and Modeling introduces a second generation of calculus reform, combining the lessons of the first generation with advances in differential equations through the use of discrete dynamical systems. This teaching philosophy requires a computational environment in which students can move smoothly between symbolic, numeric, graphic, and textual contexts. The text requires use of a computer algebra-capable graphing calculator.
