Teach point slope form first–then have students simply to get y alone and boom-slope intercept form! Then you have taught the standard without teaching the pointless “solve for b”

Bourbaki references an 1823 publication of Cauchy’s lectures. Bourbaki also states that Bolzano about the same time had the correct definition. As for the definition of the limit Bourbaki gives a 1768 publication by D’Alembert as containing the correct definition.

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 17:23:50 +0000http://teachingcalculus.wordpress.com/?p=3313#comment-4805Thank you so much for my introduction to AP Calculus. I have taught regular Calculus but not the AP. Hope I can get through all this as well as other seasoned teachers. It seems like a daunting task, but everyone has to start somewhere! Thanks for your tips!
