Tapping into mathematics

Introduction

Unit image

This module is designed for students who have a graphics or scientific calculator. It gives some examples from the TI-84. So if you have a different calculator, some things may be a little different and you may need to consult your instruction booklet. There is a lot to learn about any calculator and it may take you some time to get to know how to use its many facilities. This module focuses on using it to do arithmetic. Even in this limited role, you will find it a powerful tool with many advantages. Depending upon your previous experience using a calculator, this module may take you more or less time than others.

Although this unit uses the TI-84 calculator in its examples, you should still be able to complete this unit by using any other graphic or scientific calculator.
