Algebra is much easier to teach when your students can work through the self-directed lessons in this book. Students can explore mathematical concepts on the TI-84 Plus while you walk around the room and facilitate their learning. Keying sequences guide them through the labyrinth of menus on the TI-84 Plus without the need to page through the calculator manual. Detailed solutions at the back of the book help students over obstacles to their learning and the calculator functions are absorbed with minimal effort as the mathematics is learned. Some programs are included to showcase the power of iteration in solving some otherwise intractable problems. Historical vignettes are included to add a human dimension to the mathematical excursions. The topics include sequences & series, finding roots of polynomial equations, the fundamental theorem of algebra, complex numbers, fractals and mathematics of chaos, combinatorics, probability, linear systems, matrices, linear programming and various applications such as the mathematics of investment. A new section on Phi and the Golden Ratio has been added for current interest stimulated by The DaVinci Code. For those with the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, this book includes references to the probability simulations involving coin and dice tossing experiments found on the Applications menu. [via]
