Teaching Calculus Using Computer Algebra Systems
Technology: TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Computer Algebra Systems
Speakers: Vicki Carter, Tom Dick
Students may take AP* Calculus Exams using calculators with Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) such as TI-Nspire™ CX CAS technology. CAS can be used to assist students in making conjectures and verifying properties.
In this webinar, T³™ National Instructors will share ideas for using CAS to:
- Develop derivative and anti-derivative rules
- Perform the four approved AP* Calculus calculator operations in a CAS environment versus a non-CAS environment
- Use CAS to investigate connections between graphical, symbolic and numeric representations
- Discuss how AP* type questions are written with CAS in mind
