Calculators and Polynomial Evaluation.
Weaver, J. F.
The intent of this paper is to suggest and illustrate how electronic hand-held calculators, especially non-programmable ones with limited data-storage capacity, can be used to advantage by students in one particular aspect of work with polynomial functions. The basic mathematical background upon which calculator application is built is summarized. Along with one calculator algorithm for polynomial evaluation that is relatively independent of calculator type, eight other algorithms that illustrate a variety of calculator types, characteristics, and features are given.
