Students solve exponential equations using logarithms. In this solving exponential equations using logarithms lesson, students read a story on their Ti-Nspire about exponentials and logarithms. Students solve problems in the story using logarithms. Students use the power, product, and quotient properties to solve the stories' problems.
Students identify positive and negative angles using the Unit Circle. In this pre-calculus lesson, students identify the different angles on a unit circle using the coordinate plane and the four different quadrants as a guide. They calculate the basic trigonometric functions.
Students explore optimization problems. In this Pre-Calculus/Calculus/Algebra II lesson, students use Geometer’s sketchpad to investigate the dimensions of the largest rectangle that can be inscribed under a parabola. Students use their findings to solve optimization problems.
Students are introduced to the basic trigonometric identities. Using a diagram, they discover why the parts of the unit circle as named as they are and use equations to finalize the Pythagorean trigonometric identities. They also review basic algrebra terminology that could be useful in the present.
Students explore an optimization problem. In this Pre-Calculus instructional activity, students investigate a problem in which the distance between three points is minimized in order to determine the location of a switchboard. Students use Geometer’s Sketchpad to explore and generate data, and use that data to hypothesize a function to describe the problem.
When it comes to rating educational calculators, this calculator is always near the top of this list. Now it's available as an app. There is a lot of calculator power wrapped up in this app. Not only is this a fully functioning calculator, it is also a computer algebra system (CAS).
We landed on the moon with less computing capabilities than you can find in this app! Here is a multiple function calculator that takes all the power you get from a handheld and adds the wonderful large screen that only a tablet can provide.
Setting goals, career exploration, and self-awareness are three major components found on the path to college. A wide variety of wonderful teaching tools are provided to help you facilitate an understanding of how simple it can be to plan out an academic career. Planning cards, charts, activity procedures, and web links makes this a handy resource, focused on getting your class ready for college.
This is one of those apps that will impress you right from the start with its ability to recognize handwriting, generate graphs, and solve equations. Then, the more time you spend using this app, the more impressed you will become.
