There are several approaches to the teaching of Calculus, most of which contribute positively to the understanding of this difficult subject. We have developed a path to teach freshman calculus from a multiple perspective, which combines technology, core mathematical ideas and applications to biology, chemistry and physics. The approach presented in this paper stems from a four-year project integrating biology, mathematics, and statistics.
