Algebra Nspirations: Quadratic Functions

VIDEO: Algebra Nspirations: Quadratic Functions

In this program, the TI-Nspire is used to explore the nature of quadratic functions. Examples ranging from space travel and projectile motion provide real-world examples for discovering algebraic concepts. All examples are solved graphically. The teacher's guide provides all keystrokes shown in the video, as well as providing support for TI-84 users. Algebra teachers looking to integrate hand-held technology and visual media into their instruction will benefit greatly from this series. Concepts explored: Quadratic functions and equations, standard form, graphing quadratic equations, solving quadratic equations graphically.
