Each independent chapter is devoted to a particular course: standard calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, mathematical (calculus-based) statistics, and engineering mathematics, and uses the brand-new HP (Hewlett-Packard) - 48G series calculator to explore mathematical concepts. The chapters survey the main topics of a course and include activities, exercises, explorations, projects, and programs that engage students in a calculator-enhanced treatment of the material. "Calculator Preliminaries" section describes calculator components and capabilities, and an appendix lays out "Program Housekeeping" information. This supplement can be sold in conjunction with a Saunders text or to accompany any other text in use. Features: * Calculator activity on the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus reinforces student understanding of this important theorem. * Use of the WIREFRAME plot to present a 3-D view of a surface highlights the unique capability of the HP-48G series to do 3-D graphics. * Program for Legendre Polynomials and Gaussian Quadrature enables user to calculate these orthogonal functions and explores their use in numerical integration. * Separate Program Index for each chapter makes finding material easy.
