Math 151, 152, 153, & 254 - Calculus I, II, III, & IV


Resources Available: Textbooks(2), Student Solution Manuals (2), Student Study Guide Manuals (2),  Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM (2), TEC (Tools for Enriching Calculus) Software on Computer, Video Tapes. and Printed Practice problems (in binder) (from old text), Video Tapes on Basics of the TI 83 graphing calculator.
Online videos for Calculus I, II, and III, and for Calculus III and IV

Resource Details

  • The CD-Rom (Video Skillbuild CD) has on it selected examples from each section (2-3 typically) worked out live with explanations.
  • TEC Software   This software (Tools for Enriching Calculus) came on a disk with each new copy of the (5th edition ) textbook, and is available on the web for the 6th edition.  It is loaded on the MRC computers  from the 5th edition. Students can access it just by clicking an icon on the desktop. They should then select single or multi-variable Calc, click on the Main Menu button, and then choose Modules (to explore the ideas of Calculus graphically) or Homework Hints (for selelcted problems), or some of the other options, as desired.  The advantage of the modules is that it generally uses graphing in a fairly nice way to reinforce the ideas of calculus, and it is quite interactive—students get to make lots of choices, answer questions, etc, and then see the results.  It takes a little bit of work to get familiar with what’s available here, and to figure out how to use it, but the results are nice.
  • Video Tapes (from 5th edition of text). These are video versions of the examples worked on the CD rom.
  • Practice Problems. There are 50-100 multiple choice practice problems with answers for each chapter of the old text.  Still useful, even if Chapter and section numbers are different from new text.
  • Graphing Calculator Video Tapes. About an hour-long video on using the TI 83 graphing calculator.  (We also have one for the TI 89).  We also have a written instructional manual, and many copies of the manuals that come with the TI 83 (which the students can have for free).
