Course: Calculus I
Topic: Analysis of Curves
Subtopic: Fun with Reform Calculus


Reform calculus is a non-traditional way of studying calculus which focused on graphical and numeric approaches instead of algebraic. In a reform calculus course students discover calculus theorems and processes through experimentation rather than having them stated in a textbook. There are some aspects of this approach that are valuable in making one's understanding of the concepts concrete. We'll play with some examples in class.
