A core mathematical practice is being able to communicate results with precise language and provide rationales for conclusions.

In this webinar, presenters discuss essential elements in communication about AP® Precalculus concepts by guiding you through:

  • Describing the characteristics of a function with varying levels of precision, depending on the function representation and available mathematical tools.
  • Applying numerical results in a given mathematical or applied context.
  • Supporting conclusions or choices with a logical rationale or appropriate data.
Presenters highlight concepts using both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ CX II graphing calculators.
