AbstractThis paper describes the new approach to the calculus sequence that Embry-RiddleAeronautical University (ERAU) is piloting for the freshmen Aerospace Engineering (AE)students. In addition to having the traditional engineering curriculum, ERAU is in the second yearof its Integrated Curriculum in Engineering (ICE) in which the Mathematics Department has playeda leading role. We have implemented two important changes. We have realigned our calculussequence with Physics courses, and we have integrated technology fully throughout the curriculum.These changes have facilitated a new way of teaching: we have refocused our teaching methods toa more learner-centered approach in which teaming, problem-solving and collaborative learningplay a key role.
