When Isaac Newton developed calculus in the 1600s, he was trying to tie together math and physics in an intuitive, geometrical way. But over time math and physics teaching became heavily weighted toward algebra, and less toward geometrical problem solving. However, many practicing mathematicians and physicists will get their intuition geometrically first and do the algebra later.

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) does in fact work with screen readers! It's been tested it with Thorium so far, but it should also work with NVDA and JAWS. It's been optimized for screen readers and accessibility for our visually impaired readers.
