Explorations in College Algebra: Graphing Calculator Manual
Work more effectively using this Graphing Calculator Manual! Designed to accompany Kime's Explorations in College Algebra, 3rd Edition, this manual includes basic instructions for using the TI-82 and TI-83 and is coordinated with the chapters in the text. It is available in hardcopy and on the web. Explorations in College Algebra, 3rd Edition and its accompanying ancillaries are designed to make algebra interesting and relevant to students. The text adopts a problem-solving approach that motivates students to grasp abstract ideas by solving real-world problems. The problems lie on a continuum from basic algebraic drills to open-ended, non-routine questions. The focus is shifted from learning a set of discrete mathematical rules to exploring how algebra is used in the social, physical, and life sciences. The goal of this text is to prepare students for future advanced mathematics or other quantitatively based courses, while encouraging them to appreciate and use the power of algebra in answering questions about the world around us.
