**TITLE: The Development and Implementation of a
Web-Based Method of Instruction for Applied Calculus**

*For the last five to ten years
there has been wide exploration of innovative approaches to classroom
instruction: the use of the computer in teaching science courses. The results of those explorations have
proven that the use of the computer in teaching Applied Calculus courses
enhances the students’ understanding. *

* *

*In May 2003, I have started
developing web-based instruction of Applied Calculus to improve students’
understanding of the course by using mathematical and scientific abilities of
the latest technology. Maple software
has been used to make the instruction platform more interactive and dynamic.*

* *

*This talk is about the results
of the development and implementation of the computerized Maple interactive
Calculus teaching platform.*
