It is highly known that Moore’s Method in teaching Calculus has been implemented in many universities and colleges, nationwide. Falbo aims to continue to propose this to a wider audience, as this method has been successfully employed as an effective way to teach mathematics. The author has included his notes taken as a student of Dr. Moore’s at the University of Texas, Austin in 1995. It contains “problems that teach” that intends to minimize lectures and promote independence while learning the subject. This method, as emphasized by Falbo, is suitable for smaller classes of about 30 or fewer students. The young attendees of the Fair will definitely enjoy the book, especially those who have always been drawn to math. Falbo’s mathematical reference is a perfect element in creating future Calculus geniuses!
