First-Year Calculus as Taught by R.L. Moore is intended to facilitate student learning through IBL, or Inquiry-Based Learning, the essence of the Moore Method. Based on notes taken by the author while studying with R.L. Moore in 1955, this text incorporates the pedagogical teaching of mathematics implemented by Dr. Moore using his own collection of seminal “problems that teach.” Designed to stimulate creativity and encourage student presentations of their solutions in the classroom, the intention is to minimize lectures by the instructor and to maximize student participation in the learning process.

Clement E. Falbo is Mathematics Professor Emeritus at Sonoma State University and is the author of two other mathematics texts, Finite Mathematics Applied and Math Odyssey 2000. Dr. Falbo is married to Jean Ann Falbo and is the father of three sons.
