Teachers and students in high schools and on college and university campuses find that MacKichan Software products are the perfect tools for teaching and learning mathematics. Here's how some of them are teaching and learning effectively with Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook. (Some of these links will take you outside the MacKichan Software website.) Also see a list of textbooks created with our products.

Calculus: Understanding Its Concepts and Methods by Darel Hardy, Fred Richman, Carol Walker, and Robert Wisner
View a demo of this revolutionary calculus textbook, which incorporates Scientific Notebook in the exploration of calculus concepts.
Virtual Math Tutor Version 3.1 by Jonathan Lewin
The innovative Virtual Math Tutor supplies materials for studying mathematics in the form of over 60 full-color sound movies with a playing time of 50 hours. Topics range from beginning to advanced algebra, elementary analytic geometry, and trigonometry, all important prerequisites for university-level calculus. Detailed solutions to hundreds of exercises are included.
Virtual Calculus Tutor is a study resource for a two semester college/university calculus sequence. It presents a complete development of the differential and integral calculus of functions of a single variable, including infinite series. Virtual Calculus Tutor includes more than 60 hours of video that presents the material clearly and fully. The videos use Scientific Notebook documents as their medium and, in this way, they are a world apart from many products made with a camcorder showing a provessor standing in front of a blackboard.
