387- Dynamic Computer Algebra Systems (CAS): Making Calculus Connections

Friday, April 17, 2015: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
108 (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Thomas P. Dick
Wade Ellis


When dynamically linked to sliders, graphs, tables, and diagrams, computer algebra systems (CAS) can connect multiple representations in calculus in new and powerful ways. We will illustrate the potential with several examples, including an infinite slider, L'Hopital's microscope, Taylor's spreadsheet, and a graphically driven rocket elevator.
