Algebra Nspirations: Variables and Equations
VIDEO: Algebra Nspirations: Variables and Equations
Ever since the mathematics of the Babylonians, equations have played a central role in the development of algebra. Written and hosted by internationally acclaimed mathematics educator Dr. Monica Neagoy, this video traces the history and evolution of equations. It explores the two principal equations encountered in an introductory algebra course--linear and quadratic--in an engaging way. The foundations of algebra are explored and fundamental questions about the nature of algebra are answered. In addition, problems involving linear and quadratic equations are solved using the TI-Nspire graphing calculator. Algebra teachers looking to integrate hand-held technology and visual media into their instruction will benefit greatly from this series. Concepts explored: Variables, equations, functions, formulas, linear functions and equations, quadratic functions and equations, solving equations graphically.
