APEX Calculus is a calculus textbook written for traditional college/university calculus courses. It has the look and feel of the calculus book you likely use right now (Stewart, Thomas & Finney, etc.). The explanations of new concepts is clear, written for someone who does not yet know calculus. Each section ends with an exercise set with ample problems to practice & test skills (odd answers are in the back).

Active Calculus is different from most existing calculus texts in at least the following ways: the text is free for download by students and instructors in .pdf format; in the electronic format, graphics are in full color and there are live html links to java applets; the text is open source, and interested instructors can gain access to the original source files upon request; the style of the text requires students to be active learners — there are very few worked examples in the text, with there instead being 3-4 activities per section that engage students in connecting ideas, solving problems, and developing understanding of key calculus concepts; each section begins with motivating questions, a brief introduction, and a preview activity, all of which are designed to be read and completed prior to class; the exercises are few in number and challenging in nature.

The text is mostly an adaptation of two other excellent open- source calculus textbooks: Active Calculus by Dr. Matt Boelkins of Grand Valley State University and Drs. Gregory Hartman, Brian Heinold, Troy Siemers, Dimplekumar Chalishajar, and Jennifer Bowen of the Virginia Military Institute and Mount Saint Mary's University. Both of these texts can be found at http://aimath.org/textbooks/approved-textbooks/.
The authors of this text have combined sections, examples, and exercises from the above two texts along with some of their own content to generate this text. The impetus for the creation of this text was to adopt an open-source textbook for Calculus while maintaining the typical schedule and content of the calculus sequence at our home institution.

This short text is designed more for self-study or review than for classroom use; full solutions are given for nearly all the end-of-chapter problems. For a more traditional text designed for classroom use, see Fundamentals of Calculus (http://www.lightandmatter.com/fund/). The focus is mainly on integration and differentiation of functions of a single variable, although iterated integrals are discussed. Infinitesimals are used when appropriate, and are treated more rigorously than in old books like Thompson's Calculus Made Easy, but in less detail than in Keisler's Elementary Calculus: An Approach Using Infinitesimals. Numerical examples are given using the open-source computer algebra system Yacas, and Yacas is also used sometimes to cut down on the drudgery of symbolic techniques such as partial fractions. Proofs are given for all important results, but are often relegated to the back of the book, and the emphasis is on teaching the techniques of calculus rather than on abstract results.

This is an online textbook for a one semester calculus course aimed at business students.
The material covered is fairly standard: differentiation and integration without trigonometry, partial derivatives and optimization of functions of several variables.
There are several characteristics that differentiate the text from other texts:
Excel is used as the main computational engine throughout the text and the needed Excel skills are taught rather than assumed.
Examples, exercises, and vocabulary are tailored to uses in a business curriculum.
There is a modeling thread throughout the text.
Webwork versions of exercises are available on request.

Calculus is the mathematics of CHANGE and almost everything in our world is changing. In this course, you will investigate limits and how they are used to calculate rate of change at a point, define the continuity of a function and how they are used to define derivatives. Definite and indefinite integrals and their applications are covered, including improper integrals. Late in the course, you will find Calculus with parametric equations and polar coordinates, sequences and series, and vectors.

This course begins with a review of algebra specifically designed to help and prepare the student for the study of calculus, and continues with discussion of functions, graphs, limits, continuity, and derivatives. The appendix provides a large collection of reference facts, geometry, and trigonometry that will assist in solving calculus problems long after the course is over. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: calculate or estimate limits of functions given by formulas, graphs, or tables by using properties of limits and LĺÎĺ_ĺĚĺ_hopitalĺÎĺ_ĺĚĺ_s Rule; state whether a function given by a graph or formula is continuous or differentiable at a given point or on a given interval and justify the answer; calculate average and instantaneous rates of change in context, and state the meaning and units of the derivative for functions given graphically; calculate derivatives of polynomial, rational, common transcendental functions, and implicitly defined functions; apply the ideas and techniques of derivatives to solve maximum and minimum problems and related rate problems, and calculate slopes and rates for function given as parametric equations; find extreme values of modeling functions given by formulas or graphs; predict, construct, and interpret the shapes of graphs; solve equations using NewtonĺÎĺ_ĺĚĺ_s Method; find linear approximations to functions using differentials; festate in words the meanings of the solutions to applied problems, attaching the appropriate units to an answer; state which parts of a mathematical statement are assumptions, such as hypotheses, and which parts are conclusions. This free course may be completed online at any time. It has been developed through a partnership with the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges; the Saylor Foundation has modified some WSBCTC materials. (Mathematics 005)

CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The most important way to learn calculus is through problem-solving. While going through the solution to a problem, students are often faced with several issues. They may not see the connection between the concept taught in class and the solution. Others may not understand the solution because a step is missing or there are insufficient explanations. Or because they have weak algebra skills. The main goal of this exercise book is to address these issues to help students learn the material more efficiently and get better results. The book contains a wide variety of problems in integral calculus and multivariable calculus, with applications in differential equations, probability, management, and economics. Every problem has a very detailed solution, and the book is self-contained, as the summary for every concept is provided.

Math 400: Calculus 1

CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This is a rigorous, open, and equitable Calculus I class. It follows the OpenStax Calculus I book and uses the MyOpenMath course created by Larry Green and the ZTC grant as homework and extra resources. As well as lecture notes and worksheets created in Microsoft Word.

The structure of the course is that it follows a flipped class model, where students are required to watch lecture video created off of the lecture notes. Then students work on sectional exercises embedded in Canvas from MyOpenMath and work by themselves on the hard worksheet before the last day of the class during the week. On that day of class students will have the opportunity to work in groups on the worksheet problems.

They will be motivated to work on the problems in their groups because they will then teach the professor their random problem received as well as their group mates have points associated with their group mates work. The way they do this is through a program called GoReact that is embedded in Canvas. The main thing about this program is that students can easily share a recorded video of them teaching the math to the professor and the professor in turn can give video feedback telling the student how much they rock or letting them know what went wrong. These Teach Me Video are the foundation of the course and are the only thing the professor grades for the week unless there is a test. They are fun for both the instructor and students and increase the teacher student relationship as well as the student to student relationship. It is also easy to bump the Teach Me Videos up to make students who didn't fully understand the problem by making them redo the video to get some points back.
