According to an analysis of AP Calculus multiple-choice items, students have difficulty with conceptual problems. This talk will present an inquiry-based approach to understanding calculus concepts using action-consequence software documents. Students using such documents purposely act on mathematical objects, observe the consequences of these actions and reflect on their mathematical meaning.
