This exciting book contains 20 instructional lessons that guide students step-by-step through sequences of activities that help them learn the mathematical concepts using the TI-89 graphing calculator. Keying sequences are provided for each lesson. Students are given lots of exercises for practice of the concepts and complete solutions are given for most of the exercises.Topics included are:
- Fundamental Theorem of Algebra
- polynomial functions
- polynomial equations
- rational functions trigonometric functions
- exponential functions
- logarithmic functions
- linear systems
- linear programming
- congruence arithmetic
- complex numbers
I love the way Brendon Kelly writes. This book helped me understand Algebra more thoroughly. I love the way Brendon Kelly writes.

Shows very neat tricks with the Ti-89. There are 3 books in this series. Very useful in terms of showing you how to use the calculator to do very useful and powerful things. My only complaint is that it is written in a goofy childish manner, most likely in an attempt to take the stigma away from mathematics. The problem is you have to wade through 3 or 4 pages of FLUFF to get to the good stuff. However, once at the good stuff it is very good. It's sort of like having to listen to the pointless stories of a genius before he helps you
