wxMaxima for Calculus II

ByZachary Hannan

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"wxMaxima for Calculus II" introduces the computer algebra system wxMaxima in the context of the second semester of single-variable calculus. The book can serve as a lab manual for a one-unit one-semester calculus lab or as a reference for students and instructors who wish to learn computer algebra by example. The primary goal of the book is to teach computer algebra, but the mathematics is not given short shrift: many examples are chosen to motivate and reinforce the key concepts of Calculus II. Student learning is reinforced by exercise sets progressing from routine to advanced at the end of each chapter. wxMaxima is open source (free) software, and in that spirit "wxMaxima for Calculus II" is licensed as an open text (CC-BY-NC-SA). The .pdf is available for free download at http://wxmaximafor.wordpress.com/, and a low-cost paperback is available at http://www.lulu.com/ .
