Tapping into Mathematics with the TI-83 Graphics Calculator has been written for students who wish to learn how to use this calculator alongside relevant mathematical skills. The book takes a fresh approach to teaching mathematics, placing the Texas Instruments TI-83 machine at the centre of the learning experience. Students will find that learning mathematical principles in this way can be both exciting and fun.
Topics covered include basic calculations, statistical analysis, plotting, graphs, functions, simple algebra, trigonometry and modelling. A wealth of examples and practice exercises reinforces the students understanding of key concepts, while challenging puzzles and brain-stretchers encourage further exploration.
Numerous screendump illustrations and key press instructions provide guidance and reassurance and enable the student to exploit the powerful capabilities of the TI-83.
