Description
A series of 39 topical labs structured as a supplement to any traditional calculus text. Designed to enhance and broaden the student's understanding of calculus by incorporating Mathematica's numerical, symbolic, and graphical capabilities. Each lab introduces appropriate Mathematica commands, illustrates these commands by numerous examples, and provides exercises. Contents
