In the four years since the Tulane conference on calculus reform issued a call for a "lean and lively calculus", countless articles have been written and contributed paper sessions, talks and panels have been presented on the topic. Individuals and institutions have responded with energy and imagination in rethinking from top to bottom what should go into a calculus course. This creative energy has resulted in real change in how calculus is taught at several institutions across the country. Unfortunately, these activities have not received the publicity they deserve. That is the purpose of this book - to provide the mathematical community with detailed examples of calculus reform at work. The ten featured projects in this book, together with abstracts of more than sixty other projects and a collection of reference materials and resources, are designed to give idividuals and departments a concrete idea of what they can do, as well as information on how to do it and what resources are available.
