use. But when working with a classroom of students would I rather have 34 of
them per terminal, as it would be in the lab I have available to me or would I
rather have them use their individual graphing calcultors? Plus I can several of
them working on different equations or graphs and then ask for comparisions with
their neighbors graphs. There are lots of applets that I find very useful at
Math Tools but this is not one of them that I will use alot. As far as
vocabulary goes I have tried several methods with my Algebra II students one of
the best and a bit entertaining is called polynomial aerobics. I call out a term
such as concave up and the students should with their arms what the term
illustrates.
I did like the verbal descriptions that came with this software but not enough
to use it instead of graphing calculators.
