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