Advanced Algebra with the TI84 Plus Calculator
by Brendan Kelly (Author), Rosemary Tanner (Editor), Cartoons by Sidney Harris (Illustrator)
Brendan Kelly is Professor Emeritus at the Faculty of Education, University of Toronto (OISE/UT). He holds two doctorate degrees: a Ph.D. in Mathematics (Number Theory) from U. of T. and an Ed.D. in Computer Applications from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. Dr. Kelly has authored the MathQuest Mathematics Program (for elementary students) and the AddisonWesley Secondary School Mathematics Program (for students in grades 912). Both programs have been the standard in schools during the past two decades. Dr. Kelly founded Brendan Kelly Publishing Inc. that now offers more than 20 titles including secondary school mathematics books that help teachers use Texas Instrument Graphing Calculators to teach mathematics...

Keying Sequences Guide Them Through The Labyrinth Of Menus On Yhe TI84 Plus Calculator Without The Need To Page Through The Calculator Manual
The TI84 Plus calculator and this book will provide an exciting opportunity to discover many of the important concepts in algebra. You will investigate a diverse array of concepts including:
 sequences & series
 math of investment
 number theory
 solving equations
 probability
 matrices
 linear programming
 fractals & chaos
 and many others
Algebra is much easier to teach when your students can work through the selfdirected lessons in this book. Students can explore mathematical concepts on the TI84 Plus while you walk around the room and facilitate their learning.
Keying sequences guide them through the labyrinth of menus on the TI84 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 TI84 Plus Silver Edition, this book includes references to the probability simulations involving coin and dice tossing experiments found on the Applications menu.
