New free online seminar covering intro calculus topics

Postby Kathy_Bautista » Mon Jul 12, 2010 4:55 pm

The Wolfram Education Group recently announced its newest seminar, "S12: Topics in First Year Calculus," and so far the response from customers has been very enthusiastic, with 120 people attending the first two scheduled offerings.

Has anyone attended this seminar yet, and if so, what are your impressions?

For those of you who have't yet attended this seminar, two more sessions have been added to the calendar:

Jul 13, 6 pm - 7 pm EDT

Jul 27, 12 pm - 1 pm EDT

Here is a description of "S12: Topics in First Year Calculus" from the Wolfram education Group website:

This seminar provides a look at topics found in introductory calculus courses and illustrates Mathematica's application to those concepts. In addition to demonstrating Mathematica's built-in calculus functions, this example-driven seminar provides a look at how to expand Mathematica's functionality by creating custom functions to further explore specific topics in the classroom such as computation of Riemann sums, optimizing area, and computing trajectories. Tools and resources for exploring these topics will be made available to attendees for immediate use within the calculus classroom.
