From Calculus to Computers is a resource for undergraduate teachers that provide ideas and materials for immediate adoption in the classroom and proven examples to motivate innovation by the reader. Contributions to this volume are from historians of mathematics and college mathematics instructors with years of experience and expertise in these subjects. Among the topics included are: projects with significant historical content successfully used in a numerical analysis course; a discussion of the role of probability in undergraduate statistics courses; integration of the history of mathematics in undergraduate geometry instruction, to include non-Euclidean geometries; the evolution of mathematics education and teacher preparation over the past two centuries; the use of a seminal paper by Cayley to motivate student learning in an abstract algebra course; the integration of the history of logic and programming into computer science courses; ideas on how to implement history into any class and how to develop history of mathematics courses.
