Because of Programmable Calculators, Why Avoid These Problems Any Longer?
Snover, Stephen L.; Spikell, Mark A.
Several examples are given of a variety of nonstandard problems, not ordinarily found in texts or courses, now accessible to students who have programmable calculators. These include: (1) finding limits; (2) evaluating infinite series; (3) calculating finite series; (4) computing variable length products; (5) solving equations; (6) searching for data; and (7) developing proofs. These types of problems are discussed and reasons are given for including them in the undergraduate curriculum and solving them with calculators. (MP)
