Math Teacher Link: 
Algebra Through Modeling with the TI-82 (or TI-83) Calculator


   The purpose of this module is to familiarize mathematics teachers at the 
   high school and lower division college level with the content and teaching 
   strategies for a promising new approach to teaching advanced algebra. This 
   approach stresses modeling and solving real world problems and develops 
   skills and concepts of algebra as needed for this modeling process. In 
   this course, the students work in a collaborative learning environment and 
   make extensive use of a graphing calculator with data analysis and 
   sequence capabilities such as those found on the TI-82 or TI-83.

Advanced Algebra Through Data Exploration - A Graphing Calculator Approach (a 
textbook from Key Curriculum Press)


   "an all-new text that combines data exploration, hands-on activities, and 
   the power of graphing calculators to enhance the content of advanced
   algebra. Embracing the vision and spirit of the National Council of 
   Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for 
   School Mathematics, this innovative text emphasizes conceptual 
   understanding rather than algebraic technique."
