Make: Calculus - PDF/EPub Package
This book is not a traditional Calculus I textbook! Make: Calculus imagines how Newton might have used 3D printed models, construction toys, programming, craft materials, and an Arduino or two to teach calculus concepts in an intuitive way.
Make: Calculus imagines how Newton might have used 3D printed models, construction toys, programming, craft materials, and an Arduino or two to teach calculus concepts in an intuitive way. The book uses as little reliance on algebra as possible while still retaining enough to allow comparison with a traditional curriculum.
This book is not a traditional Calculus I textbook. Rather, it will take the reader on a tour of key concepts in calculus that lend themselves to hands-on projects. This book also defines terms and common symbols for self-learners.
A note about the EPub file...The Make: Calculus epub3 digital download that comes as part of this package (along with a PDF version) works with screen readers that can read math, such as the Thorium epub reader.
After you have the book open in Thorium, turn on MathJax functionality, which in turn reads MathML. In the current version of Thorium (2.2.0) check the box to enable MathJax at Settings > Display > MathJax. These settings are only available after you have opened at least one book in Thorium.
If you are using a separate screen reader program to interface with Thorium, you might need to add a plugin for it to be able to read MathML correctly. This epub file been optimized for screen readers and accessibility for our visually impaired readers.
