The first generation of calculus reformers exploited emerging technologies and the theme of multiple representations of functions. These pioneers also demonstrated effective, innovative teaching techniques, including collaborative learning, writing, discovery, and extended problem solving. Calculus: Mathematics and Modeling introduces a second generation of calculus reform, combining the lessons of the first generation with advances in differential equations through the use of discrete dynamical systems. This teaching philosophy requires a computational environment in which students can move smoothly between symbolic, numeric, graphic, and textual contexts. The text requires use of a computer algebra-capable graphing calculator.

- This text represents the second generation of calculus reform, combining first-generation calculus reform philosophy with advances in differential equations, through the use of discrete dynamical systems.
- A rigorous approach to the content requires the use of a computer algebra capable graphing calculator.
- Concepts are applied to science, engineering, economics, and math.
- A full 50 percent of the exercises require written interpretation of results.
- Applied problems and exercises are used to introduce the development of topics.
- Group problems (for in-class use) and exercises (for out of class use) are used as examples.
- Discovery Activities, using trial and error; conjecturing solutions from tables; graphs; and symbols, are used within the exercise sets.
- One or two Extended Projects are included in each chapter.
- "Interludes," covering non-essential theoretical, technical, and historical topics, are included.
- Chapter Summary remarks contain a statement of what was learned, and why it was included.
