About this Newsletter

From the Publisher

The Sixth Conference on the Teaching of Mathematics is coming up fast. New this year are hands-on 90-minute workshops that will run in parallel with the program and contributed papers. The Conference will make use of state-of-the-art computer labs through the University of Wisconsin to feature computer-based tools as well as other methods in these workshops.

Calculus, Second Edition
Coming in October 1997 is Calculus, Second Edition, by Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, et al. The new edition of this best-selling text will be available for Winter 1998 classes, but users of the current edition will enjoy a special benefit this fall. Students will be able to purchase Calculus, First Edition, with the Calculus Connections CD-ROM for only $5 (net) more than the price of the text. Calculus Connections is a multimedia tool (for Windows) that uses interaction, graphics, and real-world situations to engage students in applying mathematics. To order the specially-priced duo for fall, specify ISBN# 0-471-19192-2 when placing your order with the bookstore. (This offer is also available with all other Wiley Calculus texts.)

Reform Book News
Multivariable Calculus, First Edition, and Brief Calculus for Business, Social Sciences, and Life Sciences, Preliminary Edition are now available for classroom use. The forthcoming Precalculus text featured in our last issue has undergone a title change and will appear as Functions Modeling Change: A Preparation for Calculus, Preliminary Edition in time for fall classes. The Draft Version is now available for review by those who are considering adopting the Preliminary Edition for Fall, 1997, classes.
