Abstract

Reformed mathematics curricula are demanding increased use of graphing calculator technology. This report describes the background, need for, and evolution of a set of activities supporting implementation of graphing calculator technology in high school. Associated with the manual is a five-day professional development institute project. The manual is a self-contained body of notes and linked exercises describing TI-83 application throughout secondary school mathematics. It assumes no prior TI-83 knowledge. It is designed to accommodate personal instruction. Full solutions and extensive explanations are provided. A facilitator package including a complete description of managing such an institute is appended. It includes a glossary of terms and is fully referenced. Teaching tips, which provide alternate strategies and enhancements, are also included.
