Visualize Calculus
The Mathematica and Maple modules that accompany this text have been carefully written to help you visualize the fundamental ideas underlying calculus and develop your geometric intuition. Most of the modules introduce "notebooks or special functions" that you can use to solve problems or apply to a specific project. Interactive Java applets also reinforce visualization and encourage you to explore the mathematics of time and motion. Several modules have accompanying video clips that enliven the presentation.
To run these modules, you will need Mathematica or Maple already installed on your computer. If you do not have access to these computer algebra systems, you can still view the Mathematica notebooks by installing MathReader, a program included in the Applications folder of this CD. Macintosh users click here if you are having trouble opening Mathematica or Maple files, or click here if you can not see the videos included in these chapters.
