This book contains the Mathematica-based projects used in calculus at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Among the authors interests when writing these projects were to capture student interest through projects closely tied to their mathematics, science, and engineering curricula. This book will enable students to demonstrate the applicability and effectiveness of mathematics in solving clearly relevant applied problems. Computing is used not as a gimmick, but as a genuine tool on problems where it really helps. In this book, students will use calculus to understand the formation of rainbows, to study the flight of a baseball, to design some electrical circuits, to analyze an amusement park ride, to explain the reflections of a coffee cup, to design a rotary engine, and to solve many other interesting scientific problems.
