Students investigate the capabilities of the TI-89 calculator. In this Calculus lesson, students explore the statistical, graphical and symbolic capabilities of the TI-89. Students investigate topics such as solving systems of equations, finding inverse functions, summations, parametrics and trigonometry.
Students construct the graph of derivatives using a tangent line. In this construction of a graph of a derivative instructional activity, students use their Ti-Nspire to drag a tangent line along a graph. Students graph the slope of the tangent line. Students discuss the similarities and differences between the original graph and its derivative.
Twelfth graders explore the concept of limits. For this calculus lesson, 12th graders investigate the limit rules for both finite and infinite limits through the use of the TI-89 calculator. The worksheet includes examples for each rule and a section for students to try other examples.
