The Electronic Proceedings of the ICTCM contains several interesting articles on doing calculus with Scientific WorkPlace:
Examples from Calculus with Scientific Workplace by Wei-Chi Yang et al.
Abstract: In this paper, we shall use the software, Scientific Workplace, to demonstrate how we can interact with functions which are defined in Maple. We also use examples from Calculus to illustrate how we can teach live mathematics and communicate with others more effectively and efficiently without learning the syntax.
Examples in Advanced Calculus and Scientific Workplace by Wei-Chi Yang
Abstract: We have been talking about the use of computer algebra system in teaching calculus. I believe we should pay attention to the incorporation of CAS in post calculus courses. In this note I shall demonstrate how easy it is to create teaching materials to enhance students' learning with the help of Scientific Workplace in Advanced Calculus.
Scientific WorkPlace as a Tool to Evaluate Definite Integral using Trapezoidal Rule by Seu-Kea Lua et al.
Abstract: This is an example showing how Scientific WorkPlace is used as an effective tool to do live mathematics and to prepare report. A portion of an Extended Exercise which involves solving a definite integral is used. The existing feature of function definition in the system is manipulated to perform trapezoidal rule.
Maple m-files For Scientific WorkPlace by Brian Blank, Department of Mathematics, Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri
This web page discusses many of commonly used Maple functions that can be accessed from the Maple kernel within earlier versions of Scientific WorkPlace.
Mathematics of the Americap Scoring System by P.G. Mathews
This paper presents the mathematics of the Americap scoring system. Americap is a two-number handicapping system that falls between PHRF and IMS in complexity. It is a significant improvement over PHRF because it accounts for the differences in boat performance due to true wind speed (TWS). It is not as accurate as IMS because it only provides ratings for courses with predetermined beat, reach, and run content.
