Abstract

This past semester I (Jennifer Schaefer) taught single-variable calculus. Like many of you, I have taught this course numerous times, so I have a good collection of examples, lecture notes, homework questions, and exams to draw from. One would think that with all of these prepared materials, this course could become intellectually stagnant, but I have found it to be just the opposite. Because it is an introductory course, each new semester brings a new group of students with varied backgrounds, diverse interests, and new and interesting questions, and this past semester was no different.
