Agenda:
The purpose of this seminar is to teach the computational techniques required to solve elementary calculus problems. Anyone who follows the seminar will learn to compute simple derivatives and anti-derivatives and recognize problems where calculus would be applicable.
The ideal weekly itinerary:
1. The limit concept and instantaneous rate of change.
2. Applications of the derivative in the sciences.
3. Calculating derivatives and anti-derivatives.
4. Easy integration problemse.g. finding area and volume.
5. Modeling natural phenomena and differential equations.

This program is co-sponsored by John Gillespie of the ISU Math Department and the Nevada Public Library.
