## Provide Important Concepts in Algebra 2 and will have had Numerous Experiences Using Graphs, Spreadsheets and the Calculator Commands to Solve Real-World Problems

This book is designed to help teachers implement the marvelous power of TI-nspire (Touchpad version) in the teaching of Algebra 2. Keying sequences are provided to help students acquire the concepts of advanced algebra in a step-by-step fashion, while progressing smoothly through the menus of this exciting new technology. Worked examples and comprehensive sets of exercises with complete solutions are provided. Screen displays on the page enable students to connect their work on the handheld or on the computer screen to the examples in the text. On completing this book, students will have been exposed to all the important concepts in Algebra 2 and will have had numerous experiences using graphs, spreadsheets and the calculator commands to solve real-world problems. The fundamental skills of algebra are taught in concert with the appropriate use of the TI-nspire commands.

This book, together with Algebra 2 with TI-nspire: Semester 1 constitute a full course in Algebra 2. Both the pedagogy and content have been developed to implement the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics Unit 7: Rational and Radical Functions & Equations Unit 8: Exponential & Logarithmic Functions & Equations Unit 9: Trigonometric Functions & Equations Unit 10: Trigonometric Identities Unit 11: Analytic Geometry: Conics & Polar Coordinates Unit 12: Permutations, Combinations & Probability Unit 13: Statistics

Rating: ★★★★

A fine series of books for people learning to the mathematician (students, school students, teachers).

Application and work with the Texas Instruments device is perfectly described.

Great info for algebra 2. The click pad TI nspire is so close to the cx that the books are very useful to have as a resource for my classes! There are many activities that are helpful for Algebra and Algebra 2 classes.

i bought this book because of an excellent previous book for the author many years ago, and that was " investigating advanced algebra" with Ti 92 unlike the aforementioned book, this one is merely a manual for the Calculator. it lacks all the motivations and the programming. i gave 3 stars for the book, because it might be only useful for high school students. hoping Mr Kelly would write another book for college level using this advanced calculator.
