Activity: Advanced Placement Calculus with the TI-89
Go to: (opens a new window)
Description: The TI-89 incorporates graphical and numerical features with a powerful computer algebra system that has the potential to dramatically alter how and what our students should learn. By incorporating this technology in the mathematics classroom, our students truly have a tool that facilitates a "three-fold" (numeric, graphic and analytic) approach to understanding and using mathematics. Teachers can use the computer algebra capability of the TI-89 to create a lab setting where students discover concepts and theorems. When students discover a theorem they feel a sense of ownership and an interest in the proof of the theorem. The activity book is available for purchase or each activity can be downloaded free in PDF format.
