When most people think of calculus, they think of complicated math. But calculus is really a study in how things change. It provides, when there is change, modeling systems’ framework and a way to make predictions concerning such models. The construction of basic quantitative models of change, and how to deduce their consequences, are provided by calculus. What this means for, let’s say, engineers, is extraordinary power. And with the additional power supplied by today’s technology, you can honestly tell students that the world is their oyster.
Simply put, the calculation of the rate of change is to calculus what algebra and the study of space and shape are to geometry. Calculus isn’t for everyone, but today’s technological advancements are. And they can take something that is difficult and make it just a little bit easier to understand. Unfortunately, many instructors are just a little bit afraid of technology. Educate LLC is here to make sure that no more fear exists when it comes to today’s technology in the classroom.
