Summary form only given. Professional engineering societies have a long history of bridging the critical seam between workplace need and student classroom content. Four decades ago, all societies participated in a successful move to introduce calculus into secondary school curricula, responding to challenges and threats of the Cold War. Today's workplace has since evolved beyond analog-continuous data processing to deal with digital-discrete sampled data. Calculus continues its role but it needs step-extensions for modern workplace applications.
