GRAPHING CALCULATOR LESSONS

Below are examples of activities using graphing calculators prepared by students in my Methods of Teaching Secondary Mathematics class over the past few semesters. Most of these actvities are self-guided and self-paced worksheets that teach students how to accomplish certain tasks on a graphing calculator. Unless otherwise noted, all activities are for the TI83/84 family of calculators.
All of the investigations below are PDF files. In order to view and print them, you need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you do not already have it, click on the icon to the right to get your free copy.
