This App employs interactive motion simulations, visualization tools and the CBR™ Animator (that replays imported motions) to enliven and deepen understanding of both traditional core Algebra material and the ideas underlying Calculus at the same time - for ALL students!
Interactive graphs and functions control dynamic representations, adding a new depth of meaning for key ideas underlying the mathematics of change and variation that crosses many grades.
In addition, SimCalc MathWorlds™ works as a device app on its own or in conjunction with a parallel version of the software (see www.simcalc.umassd.edu/software) to connect students' work together using the TI-Navigator™ wireless system.
The SimCalc activities exist as appvars and computer documents which are aligned with the NCTM Principles and Standards and some State Frameworks. Sample activities can be found on the SimCalc website.
