This course is concerned with the development of students' understanding of the concepts of calculus and students' experience with its methods and applications.  Questions, concepts, and results are approached and expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.  Connections between these representations are used to aid students in forming concepts about rates and accumulation.

Students learn the symbolic manipulations that are part of calculus through activities that focus upon ways of representing relationships between changing quantities.  In these activities, students focus on the meaning and reasonableness of solutions, interpretations of information and results, and the verification of conjectures.

Students use technology to explore and reinforce the relationships between different representations of functions.  Technology is also used to focus students on the underlying methods that produce the results of calculus.  Rather than study a broad taxonomy of methods, students learn how to produce a core set of results, and how to use basic principles to draw conclusions.

Using technology, students investigate contexts of interest that are beyond the scope of the symbolic approaches students learn to perform by hand.  Regardless of the approach, students learn how to communicate the ideas of calculus orally and using well-written sentences.  Students explain their solutions and the meanings of the representations they use in their answers.
