Overview

Projects for Calculus is designed to add depth and meaning to any calculus course. The fifty-two projects

presented in this text offer the opportunity to expand the use and understanding of mathematics. The wide range of topics will

appeal to both instructors and students. Shorter, less demanding projects can be managed by the independent learner, while

more involved, in-depth projects may be used for group learning. Each task draws on special mathematical topics and

applications from subjects including medicine, engineering, economics, ecology, physics, and biology.
