The Connected Curriculum Project is a coordinated effort to create interactive learning environments for a wide range of mathematics and mathematicallybased applications. Our materials combine the flexibility and connectivity of the Web with the power of computer algebra systems. These materials may be used by groups of learners as an integrated part of a course or by individuals as independent projects or supplements to classroom discussions.
Most of the CCP learning materials are modules: singletopic units that can be used for a twohour lab, or for a shorter supervised period with followup on the student's own time, or for selfstudy. Most of our modules are classtested with students working in twoperson teams in a lab environment. Some modules use an application area to stimulate learning of mathematics, and others go straight to the mathematics. Each module consists of several html pages containing discussion and guidance for exploring a topic, generally using Java and/or a computer algebra system. Nearly all modules are currently available for Maple. Many are available for Mathematica, and some are available for Mathcad and Matlab.
There are two longer projects created by faculty at Rockhurst College.
All of these materials use at least some of these powerful tools: hypertext links, Java applets, sophisticated graphics, a computer algebra system, realistic scenarios, thoughtprovoking questions that require written answers, summary questions that enable students to see the forest as well as the trees.
The list of available modules is divided according to mathematical subject area (some modules appear in more than one area) and according to application. Click on a subject area or an application area to find the modules available in that area.

The authors/instructors below have taught multiple courses using the CCP materials. You may link to their personal and course homepages, from which you will find textbook choices, course outlines, homework assignments, grading schemes and other information on courses involving the CCP materials.

To use the modules effectively you will need one of the following helper applications installed on your system:
 Mathcad, Version 6 or higher 
 Maple, Version 6 or higher 
 Mathematica, Version 4.0 or higher 
 Matlab, Version 5.1 or higher 
When the button for your helper application (as shown above, or for a more recent version) appears on the Contents page of a module, the button links to a worksheet designed to be used with the module. Depending on the configuration of your browser, clicking on the helper application button will either lauch your helper application and load the file, or will cause your browser to prompt you to `Open' or `Save' the file. In the former case, you may need to specify the application (Mathcad, Maple, Mathematica) needed to open the file. In the latter case, saving the file to your disk will allow you to launch your helper application and load the file. The Matlab ".m" files for a given module are downloaded in an archive format  follow the instructions for your computer on the Matlab download page.
Most modules have been designed so that the benefits of both the web and a computer algebra system (which we often refer to as a helper application) can be utilized. All discussion will take place in the web page, and students will make calculations and record their observations in a worksheet for your preferred helper application. The materials are designed for constant interplay between web pages and your helper application worksheet! Throughout the module, navigation buttons are provided  see description of buttons.
Most users find that the materials are easiest to use when both the web pages and the helper application worksheet are visible side by side, as show below (with a module web page on the left and a Maple worksheet on the right).
This site uses a consistent system of navigation. The buttons which appear in the module pages, and descriptions of their functions, are shown below. (Within a module, the functionality of the navigation buttons is duplicated in text links at the end of each page.)
Each module will use one of the following buttons to designate the subject area of the module.
Precalculus  
Differential Calculus  
Integral Calculus  
Multivariable Calculus  
Differential Equations  
Linear Algebra  
Engineering Mathematics
