The first years of the calculus reform movement were characterized by a whirlwind of ideas concerning the organization of the course and the associated curriculum." "The papers contained within Calculus Renewal: Issues for Undergraduate Mathematics Education in the Next Decade will spark a renewed interest in the endeavor embarked upon over 10 years ago when the first calculus grants were awarded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). This book intends to address: relating mathematics to other disciplines; determining the appropriate mathematical skill for students exiting first-year collegiate mathematics courses; determining the appropriate role of technology; determining the appropriate role of administrators in the change process; and evaluating the progress and impact of curricular change."--Jacket." ;
