TI-82 mini- labs
Sharon North developed a series of algebraic investigations for use in the MTH:140 Algebra course.
The series of five mini-labs require the use of the Texas Instruments- 82 graphing calculator. The labs were designed to take between 30 and sixty minutes of class time per week to complete and were worked in small groups. The project's intent was to enrich the teaching of algebra, to extend the students' abilities to work mathematically, to improve student confidence through group interaction, and to teach students about the use of new technologies.
