|Using Excel in Finite Math and Business Calculus|
The online Excel projects and online guide to projects and a separate printed supplement are a result of my experience in teaching finite math for business majors while I was at Saint Peter's College (1995-2000). The online projects and online guide to projects are freely available from Prentice Hall as supplements to their textbooks, although they are fairly general. The printed Excel supplement is published by BrookCole/Cengage.
If you are interested in just taking a peek, an overview , in PDF format, gives a summary and some example Excel tutorials and projects. To view the file, you will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader , which can be downloaded for free.
I hope you find these materials useful in your course. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. -- Reva Narasimhan
BrooksCole/Cengage has published Excel guide for finite mathematics and applied calculus (ISBN: 0395961483), written by R. Narasimhan, as a supplement to their series of finite mathematics and business calculus books. The introductory chapter is available from the Cengage web site. You can probably request a complimentary copy of the entire book from your publisher's representative if you are a faculty member.
