Welcome to the C&M Website

In the late 1980s, University of Illinois professor Jerry Uhl joined with Horacio Porta (Illinois) and Bill Davis (Ohio State) to pioneer a technology-based mathematics curriculum. They developed materials for Calculus I, II, and III, Differential Equations, Applied Linear Algebra, and Probability and Statistics which used the computer program Mathematica. These courses comprised the Calculus & Mathematica (C&M) program and were later used in the NetMath program. (NetMath offers online versions of some of the mathematics courses at Illinois).

In the last two decades, Mathematica has become the computer algebra system of choice for many universities seeking to augment their traditional classroom materials. Students routinely use technology in their everyday lives, and the C&M program at the University of Illinois offers students a unique opportunity to learn in a blended course environment. In 2013, the C&M courseware for the original courses was moved to the online platform Making Math, which runs a custom online version of Mathematica.

C&M courses lie at the intersection of education and technology in the Mathematics Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
