Mathematics Framework for the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress
This is an assessment framework, not a curriculum framework. In broad terms, this framework attempts to answer the question: What mathematics should be assessed in 2009 on NAEP at grades 4, 8 and 12? The answer to this question must necessarily take into account the constraints of a large-scale assessment such as NAEP, with its limitations on time and resources. Of critical importance is the fact that this document does not attempt to answer the question: What mathematics should be taught (or ho

Calculus III, Fall 2006
This course is an introduction to the calculus of functions of several variables. It begins with studying the basic objects of multidimensional geometry: vectors and vector operations, lines, planes, cylinders, quadric surfaces, and various coordinate systems. It continues with the elementary differential geometry of vector functions and space curves. After this, it extends the basic tools of differential calculus - limits, continuity, derivatives, linearization, and optimization - to multidimen

Calculus I, Summer 2007
This course is an introduction to differential and integral calculus. It begins with a short review of basic concepts surrounding the notion of a function. Then it introduces the important concept of the limit of a function, and use it to study continuity and the tangent problem. The solution to the tangent problem leads to the study of derivatives and their applications. Then it considers the area problem and its solution, the definite integral. The course concludes with the calculus of element

Earth Exploration Toolbook Chapter: Analyzing the Antarctic Ozone Hole
Users download and analyze satellite images showing the amount of ozone in the stratosphere. They interpret the images to identify the ozone "hole" that develops over Antarctica each summer, and compare its size from year to year. Using freely available image analysis software, ImageJ, users quantify the area of the Antarctic ozone hole each October from 1996 to 2004. Finally, they bring their measurements into a spreadsheet program and create a graph to document changes in the size of the ozone
