Présentation de l'éditeur
In this second volume of the series, careful attention is given to the CAS specific features of the TI-Nspire CAS. Basic features such as expanding, factoring, and solving simple equations are covered as well as more advanced techniques such as solving complex equations, derivatives, integrals, and differential equations. Any student or teacher working with mathematics from algebra through calculus can benefit from the techniques taught in this book.
The third edition of these TI-Nspire CX CAS tutorials are written for TI-Nspire CAS OS 4.2, the latest version of the operating system, released in 2016. If you have an older version of the operating system on your TI-Nspire CX CAS, you will find directions in the book on where to turn to update your calculator at no additional cost. If you have an older grayscale version of the TI-Nspire CAS, it will only upgrade to version 3.9. With an older grayscale TI-Nspire CAS, you can still take advantage of most, but not all, of the tutorials in this book.
Lucas Allen has become an authority on the use of the TI-Nspire CAS since its release, as he was an early adopter of the device for use with the math team he coached in a public school in downstate Illinois for many years. In the spring of 2012, his team captured the Illinois math team state championship, beating out many of Chicago's elite private schools. In this book, you will learn many of the exact same strategies his team used on the TI-Nspire CAS.
For over a decade, Allen taught mathematics at the high school level with students of every imaginable achievement level. He worked with the TI-Nspire for a majority of his time as a classroom teacher. He blogs about graphing calculators and other mathematics technologies at Tech Powered Math.
