Make: Calculus (Make)
Friday, 23 September 2022

This book, subtitled "Build models to learn, visualize, and explore" imagines how Isaac Newton, creator of Calculus, might have used 3D printed models, construction toys, programming, craft materials, and an Arduino or two to teach calculus concepts in an intuitive way. Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron use as little reliance on algebra as possible while still retaining enough to allow comparison with a traditional curriculum.

<ASIN:168045739X>

This book is not a traditional Calculus I textbook. Rather, it will take the reader on a tour of key concepts in calculus that lend themselves to hands-on projects. This book also defines terms and provides common symbols for them so that self-learners can learn more on their own.
