Class Handouts:
These are set up on an FTP page.  All documents appear in folders just like on your computer.  Sometimes the link below works and sometimes it doesn’t, so you may have to cut and paste the address directly into your web browser:
 
 
Note: I think if you are on the DVC wireless you can’t access ftp pages - you need to go to a computer that’s physically hooked into the internet.
 
Mathematica Notebooks (Instructions, Demos and Student Projects)
These are also set up on the FTP page listed above.
 
Calculus Field Trips Project
Funded by an NSF grant, this project brings DVC calculus classes to science and engineering firms which use calculus in their work.
