Description:

<p>These explorations allow students to discuss topics and discover the ideas of calculus for themselves in groups of 3 or 4. &nbsp;The teacher should be present to help, of course, but this discussion leads to deeper understanding of calculus and to more rigorous mathematical work. &nbsp;Struggling and making mistakes is essential to better thinking, and when you have students do this in a classroom 2 or 3 times a week, they learn that initial confusion is normal for math problems, and they can surmount their initial confusion. &nbsp;Explorations build interest, understanding, camaraderie, and confidence.</p>
