Project Based Math 112, Fall 2001

To create this website, we took the course home page written for
the students of Projects 112 Fall 2001, and altered it just a bit to
include more instructor resources (for example, TeX versions of handouts).

Also, sources of activities and projects are not always credited
individually. We borrowed/adapted many activities from the
Instructors Guide which accompanies the Stewart textbook. We also
consulted the books:

*Student Research Projects in Calculus*, Marcus Cohen, Edward
D. Gaughan, Arthur Knoebel, Doublas S. Kurtz, and David Pengelley. MAA,
1991.

*Calculus:An Active Approach with Projects*, Steve Hilbert,
John
Maceli, Eric Robinson, Diane Driscoll Schwartz, and Stan Seltzer. John
Wiley and Sons, Inc., 1994.

Also, we combed the other calculus sites listed on the Projects Calculus at Cornell Home Page, so we may
have used ideas from any/all of those sources. We also used
the Spring 1995 Projects Calculus at
Cornell model in designing the course.
