One of the uses for spreadsheets I have used with "regular" students was in a
postalgebra 2 elective, for students who didn't want to take precalculus
for various reasons. We did some "discrete dynamical systems" (basically
coupled recursivelydefined systems). In COMAP's Math Modeling Our World
Course 1 (this curriculum is intended for ALL students, roughly equivalent to an
Algebra 1 course), Unit 4 uses spreadsheets to fit curves to data, and to
analyze errors in curve fitting.
