Teaching Math 4R: Calculus UNIT 2 - Limits!

Teaching Math 4R: Calculus UNIT 2 - Limits! 

preCalculus for Seniors finished Calculus UNIT 2: Limits this week! We talked about continuity and the definition of the derivative. 

We also tried doing this unit without a Graphing Calculator like the TI-83 we're used to. I showed my students a Computer Algebra System called SAGE. SAGE is based on the python programming language and is very easy to use. SAGE is a free online mathematical programming environment like Mathematica and MATLAB. The ScreenCast below is a playlist including videos from last year using the TI-83 and new videos from this year using SAGE.

Here's our ScreenCasts and SmartNotes for this week:

Well, that's all folks!
