Features for Students:
Comprehensive Online Video Tutorials
We've built Thinkwell's Calculus around a series of 277 internet-based multimedia tutorials, providing 40 hours of instructional material. Compared with a traditional textbook, Thinkwell's offers a more engaging, more effective way for students to learn.
Rather than reading dense chunks of text for homework, students access the internet to watch video lectures filled with illustrations, examples, even humor.
Students report learning material more easily with Thinkwell than a traditional textbook.
Interactive Exercises with Feedback
Thinkwell's Calculus contains 1,086 exercise items with fully worked-out solutions and explanations for right and wrong answers. Students can work on the exercises at the computer or print them out to work on later. Once students enter their answers in the computer, the items are automatically graded and the results reported to professors.
While the online video lectures are the heart of Thinkwell products, we also offer concise, illustrated review notes, a glossary, transcripts of the video lectures, and links to relevant websites. All of these materials may be viewed online, and the notes and transcripts may be printed and kept for reference. Thinkwell's Calculus also features dynamic Flash ™ animations that further explain concepts that give students the most trouble, including the determination of volumes of solids of revolution and the evaluation of integrals using trigonometric substitution.
Access to all review materials is included in the price of this "online access" package.
Thinkwell's Calculus also features online video lectures that apply calculus to everyday situations, such as determining the instantaneous velocity of a bicyclist or the depth of a pit into which a traditional Calculus textbook has been dropped!
