Based on the popular "Workshop Approach", which has been hailed by the community for its hands on approach, these new versions of the popular Workshop Calculus allow the easy incorporation of a graphing calculator. Like the originals, these volumes cover topics in calculus while simultaneously reviewing precalculus concepts. Activities, experiments, and exercises
Based on the popular "Workshop Approach", which has been hailed by the community for its hands on approach, these new versions of the popular Workshop Calculus allow the easy incorporation of a graphing calculator. Like the originals, these volumes cover topics in calculus while simultaneously reviewing precalculus concepts. Activities, experiments, and exercises are found throughout.
