The CLeaR Project
University of Maryland, College Park

Using mathematical software to enhance undergraduate education.

The CLeaR project in multivariable calculus, along with the SCHOL project in differential equations, is part of a program at the Mathematics Department at the University of Maryland, College Park, to introduce mathematical software into undergraduate courses in a meaningful way. Collaborators Kevin Coombes, Ron Lipsman and Jonathan Rosenberg have developed materials to introduce Mathematica into the sophomore Multivariable Calculus course. The result is the book Book Cover

Multivariable Calculus and Mathematica,
with Applications to Geometry and Physics,

published by Springer. The book is available as a paperback or ebook from the Springer website.
