“wxMaxima for Calculus I” and “wxMaxima for Calculus II” introduce the free open-source computer algebra system wxMaxima in the context of single variable calculus. Each book can serve as a lab manual for a one-unit semester calculus lab, a source of supplemental CAS exercises or a tutorial reference for students and instructors who prefer learn computer algebra by example.
