Project description

The goal of this project was to create several sections of an online open-access textbook for Multivariate Calculus. Undergraduates helped write exercises for a chapter on integration, to improve these exercises and make them more accessible to students. This project additionally provided the instructor with insight into student difficulties with multivariate calculus, improving teaching. Beyond this project, the ultimate goal is to create a freely available, accessible and downloadable textbook so that this resource can be shared widely and improved by multiple authors.

Project start date: July 14, 2006
Funding awarded: $2,500
