Great!! Jim, Thanks from the physicists-to-be. I do the modelling in
PreCalc on the TI-82 and they love the real problems - think reality is the
motivator. Do wish for natural e as a base possibility; does the TI-83 have
better choices? Guess I could write TI (they seem to be receptive people).
The program I wrote in 1982 (and use some today) for the Apple II does
natural e base and also hyperbola (as one doesn't know to take the
reciprocal for one variable at the beginning). Anyone still using Apple IIs
want a copy?
Think I am repeating myself but KaleidaGraph does do the 'e-to-the' and
is very friendly as to polishing up a graph for presentation. The kids like
to see who can produce the most attractive graph. Stimulates familiarity with
program so I encourage it. Use in Statistics and Physics II.
Have you seen the video from the North Carolina School of Science and Math
(published by Jansen) on Data Analysis? Recommend it. It is a companion for
Contemporary Precalculus Text (which is my choice for next year but don't
have the money in the budget). Small private school.
That's it for a while.
