Get Inspired by your Calculator!

February 8, 2010

So you have this calculator. It’s got lots of buttons, and does a ton of stuff, at least it does according to the manual…

Somehow, it seems more difficult to use for you than everyone else – perhaps an old calculator, like the one on the left would be easier to use…

No – there is a better way – you’ve got to go to TI BOOT CAMP!

Make that calculator work – learn how to make it work for you! VCAA will design exams that assume that you have particular calculator skills – and if you don’t have them – you can’t make your calculator work for you – you are at a disadvantage!

Fortunately, there are some really good websites that will help you become a TI black belt. You should complete one of these videos each night from the Introduction to Graphing, Introduction to Calculator and CAS and Activities using CAS: Systems of Equations sections. You can also use the Atomic Video Tutorials to brush up on some of the basic skills you will need.

Here are some additional notes (1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9 – yes, there is no “7”)┬áto support your learning of this content.

Good luck, and remember to use your Math responsibly – Don’t Drink & Derive!
