### Abstract:

This handbook contains a collection of the winning entries in the first INPUT Competition, part of the INPUT (Innovative Programs Using Technology) Project. The INPUT Project was designed to improve instruction by recognizing and rewarding college instructors who rethought the mathematical content of their introductory mathematics courses with innovative uses of technology. The targeted introductory mathematics courses were developmental mathematics, precalculus, business mathematics, and introductory statistics.
