This page emphasizes the practical concepts of calculus, and is intended to provide a new context for the student already familiar with much of the material. The emphasis is on how calculus can actually be used outside of the classroom, and how the language of calculus is important in many other disciplines. It features articles for download, on topics from exponential growth and decay to discontinuities, vector fields and differential equations. All of the articles include extensive notes, examples, and figures. This resource is part of the Teaching Quantitative Skills in the Geosciences collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/quantskills/
