The Calculus Collection: A Resource for AP and Beyond

January 28, 2011

Roger Nelsen, professor emeritus of mathematics, co-edits this useful resource for those who teach calculus in high schools or colleges. It consists of 123 articles, selected by a panel of six veteran high school teachers, that focus on engaging first-time calculus students. (In spring 2009, while leading the college’s overseas study program to Seville, Nelsen took the book’s cover photo of the Cachorro or Chapina bridge. Its pedestrian awnings are in the approximate shape of a hyperbolic paraboloid.)

Mathematical Association of America, 2009. 527 pages. $75.
