The incredible power of the technology of handheld calculators and desktop computers has made many new learning tools available to students. Through the use of such computational devices, students at Grand Valley have the consistent opportunity to explore mathematics and make conjectures in the classes they take. In addition, calculators and the computer program Maple enable students to see powerful results in difficult problems that may be inaccessible by hand. Especially in calculus, faculty make extensive use of laboratory assignments designed to allow students to make key discoveries independently. Such handson work in the classroom is one important way that students are actively involved in the learning process. To see examples of some of the activities students engage in that use technology, check out our Calculus Archive , especially the various Lab Activities that are available there for Math 201 and Math 202.
