Student Created Calculus Movies Using Computers and the TI-92.
Sher, Lawrence; Wilkinson, Patricia
The Mathematics Department at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) (New York) has been actively involved since 1988 in a serious and successful program to improve instruction, understanding, and retention for women and minority students in calculus courses. One result of this work has been students creating calculus animations using computers. This paper reports on a workshop that had participants create projects and animations on the TI-92 calculator. The two projects presented here are an economics project that can effectively exploit the classroom use of the new TI-92 calculator and an animation of the MacLaurin series for Sin(x). Steps to create animations using the TI-92 are also included. (JRH)
